This is a collection of photographs of New York City, shot between 1978-2005 on Kodachrome. It immortalizes the transformation of Soho, Little Italy, Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side. These photos tell an authentic story of New York City: real New Yorkers living and working in their own neighborhoods. In Herman's bold use of light and composition, he effectively transforms everyday subject matter into vibrant, emotion-filled images. It also tells another story: that of Herman's battle with bipolar disorder. A physical representation of the empathy Herman had for his subjects while struggling with his own sense of outsider-ness is what makes this of interest to all who know and love New York City.
