On September 12, photographer Robert Herman will be giving an Artist’s Talk before signing copies of his recent book titled The New Yorkers. Herman, who began taking color photographs of people on the street while attending college at New York University, used Kodachrome film to chronicle the evolution of the city from 1978 to 2005. Taking inspiration from the likes of Harry Callahan and Robert Frank, he focuses on the quotidian activities he encounters while walking the streets of New York City.

The talk will start at 6:30 p.m at the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation located on east 11th Street and University Place. It’s free to attend, though reservations are required.
