DCP and Texas Photographic Society present an evening lecture with New York photographer, Robert Herman. Robert has been a street photographer since his days as an NYU film student back in the late 70’s. He is well known for his ground breaking book The New Yorkers, shot on Kodachrome over a period of 27 years.
Robert will share how his love for making images has evolved over the years and discuss how he used his iPhone and the Hipstamatic app to produce his most recent book, The Phone Book. Both of his books are now proudly part of the MOMA permanent library collection. Copies of The Phone Book will be available for purchase and Robert will be available after the lecture for a book signing.
Robert is also teaching a 5 day workshop at DCP from June 8-June 12. He is a strong believer in the idea that it is the eye of the photographer that makes the photo, not the camera. In an intimate and collaborative setting, he will share his experience in shooting and editing photographs.
This speaker series is presented in collaboration with:
