Black and White Street Photographs of New York City by Matt Weber

December 1, 2011

Welcome to my gallery featuring 4 Decades of New York Street Photographs

I want you to enjoy my galleries of street photography without getting lost. There are many different galleries with subjects you can peruse. If you you are interested in Subway photos there are plenty of images which show the NYC subway system in all its "splendor" Maybe you want to see some pictures of Harlem when it was still Harlem.You can leave comments if you feel so inclined. Most images can be purchased as signed  ptints for your collection.  "The Urban Prisoner" (Shown on the left) is my first monograph, published in 2004 by Sanctuary Books. Introduction by Ben Lifson. There are still some copies available for purchase. Please inquire about licensing my images for documentary use. Blu-Ray quality files (or 4K) are available for any project you may be working on…Thanks!

NYC 1988

This old lady would sleep on the corner of 86th & Broadway, and one night she used her “Red Apple” shopping bag to create a pillow. I have recently seen a new wave of homelessness which rivals the 1980’s, hit New York. This time it’s mostly runaways from other towns who are young, white, and addicted to heroin. It is not an easy time to walk down the street…
