Street Photographyby Daniel Norman A small sample from a street photography project that I have been working on since 2007. This street photography project is based in New York City and combines the classic and iconic backdrop of New York with the modern inhabitants who utilize the city. Time has had a major effect on New York Street Photography, so some of the images in this project were shot on black and white film with a Leica M rangefinder in order to connect the modern era with classic New York Street Photography. These images captures on film the interactions of New Yorkers with their surroundings, whether it's people commuting, working, exercising, or relaxing, it all takes place in the public realm.

New York Photography ProjectImages from an ongoing New York Photography Project. New York Photography has been a project that I have been working on for years. The dynamic nature of New York City fosters inspiration as a artist. New York is considered by many as the center of the world, and it is known as the city that doesn't sleep. For an artist that doesn't sleep, New York is the perfect location to be born and raised. Even in the wee hours of the morning, there is movement in New York City. The streets have a personality of their own, and this New York Photography project was started with the goal of getting to visually know NYC. From Brooklyn and beyond, the buildings, cars, people, and even the bridges add to the personality of New York. A large part of this New York Photography project is street photography, but not all of the images included can be classified under this genre. Some of the images try to capture the small moments of calm in such a large., loud, bustling city. These calm moments are cherished by New Yorkers like myself who need an occasional break from the chaos. Some more New York images can be found at Brooklyn Lens.
