NYC Street Photography by Matt Weber

Coney Island 2014

Coney-Black-family-matt-weberOn 9/11 I photographed the final tower’s collapse with my 200mm lens. I never picked the lens up again. I don’t know why this happened, but I have only used two lenses, a 28 & a 35mm since then. The old saying “If you your photos aren’t good enough, you weren’t close enough” sometimes has some truth to it, but you can get too close and that can be bad as well. I think we live in a time where experts, and so called experts can’t shut the fuck up! It is very tiring to read all of the so called rules which are now available everywhere, online and in print. By far the worst is “How to become a fearless street photographer” Every soldier knows that some fear is necessary for self preservation and when on the street, being fearless can get one into trouble but quick.

The only advice I would give, and I won’t charge anyone a penny, is shoot what you want, when you want, but use some common sense! That’s what it’s there for…

NYC 2006 AKA “Lolita and the Corpse”

The stupid title is for the “Title Police” who take this stuff way too seriously, and also for my dad who has been cringing from them for decades…
