Hi,

At the very beginning of The New Yorkers book project you were there with your support. It couldn't have happened without you. 

I'm so happy to let you know that the first printing of 1000 copies has sold out, and I was able to do a reprint.

Please let your friends know that the second printing of The New Yorkers has arrived! Signed copies are available from my website: http://robertherman.com/

There's a new back cover of the second printing of The New Yorkers with fabulous quotes from: 

 Foreword Reviews: https://www.forewordreviews.com/reviews/the-new-yorkers/ 

and Lens Culture: https://www.lensculture.com/articles/robert-herman-the-new-yorkers-color-street-photography-from-the-1980s

I'm also really proud to tell you that The New Yorkers will continue to be available at these bookstores, just to name a few in NYC:

MoMA, ICP, The Strand, Barnes and Noble, St. Marks Books, and McNally-Jackson in SoHo.

It's been an amazing journey.

Thanks so much again for being there!

Have a great Spring!

Best, Robert

Thanks to all of you, my Kickstarter backers, 2013 has been an amazing year for The New Yorkers. I am thrilled to report that the book has received glowing reviews from

Lens Culture:

https://www.lensculture.com/articles/robert-herman-the-new-yorkers-color-street-photography-from-the-1980s

and from 

Foreword Reviews:

https://www.forewordreviews.com/articles/article/capturing-a-nuanced-city/

Images from the book and the story of my personal journey was published on Lens Blog in The New York Times and in print in the Sunday Metro Section.

http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/06/14/art-of-inner-turmoil/

Interviews with me and images from The New Yorkers have been featured on many blogs around the world.

The book is now available in many great bookstores including MoMA, ICP, the Strand, St. Marks Bookshop, Barnes and Noble and at the Museum of the City of New York.

At this point in mid December, I am thrilled to say that the first edition that you all helped make a reality is almost sold out. If you'd like to order a signed copy to give to someone special this holiday season, there are still signed copies and prints available from my website. http://robertherman.com

I just wanted to thank you all again for being there from the beginning and for believing in this project. It truly was your faith in me that made this all possible.

I wish you a great holiday season and a Happy New Year.

Thanks again.

Best,

Robert

"What makes these photographs exceptional is Herman’s openness to happenstance. He has the ability to recognize his subjects against a particular backdrop, a storefront window, a sign in the background, or even the body language of a passerby, and to frame it in a revealing way...It is this confluence of time, place, keen photographic vision, and a fiercely personal engagement to subject that makes these images so special"
 - from the foreword by Sean Corcoran, Curator of Prints and Photographs of the museum of the City of New York.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Best,

Robert

The New Yorkers coming soon to a doorstep very near you.

Hi

I will be sending out The New Yorkers to everyone outside of NYC in the next two weeks.  In early April, there will be a launch party in Manhattan to celebrate. I will send an update shortly with the specific day and time of the party. I hope that all the local kickstarter backers will come to the party for some wine and to pick up your books, post cards, prints etc.

After my next update, please get in touch if you won't be able to make it, and I will ship your reward to you. 

In the meantime, anyone who has not updated me about a change of address, now is the time.

Thanks again to you, my lovely and fantastic backers.

Best,

Robert
