New York Street Diaries is an impressive coffee table book for all the fans of the Big Apple. Phil Penman shows the big city on the east
coast of the USA from a side that is rarely seen, calm and tranquil. The pictures were taken partly during the great snowstorm and
partly during the Corona Lockdown and are thus contemporary witnesses of the pandemic restrictions that completely turned our
previously-known world upside down. Born in Great Britian (Poole, Dorset), he has been photographing the streets of New York for well over two decades.
He is known, among other things, for his photographs of famous personalities such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez or Bill Gates. When the biggest tragedy in New York's history shook the city on 11 September 2001, Phil Penman was on the spot and
created unique footage of the events with his camera.
Penman knows how to capture the city in its most sensitive moments in an impressive way. He catches intimate moments in his black and-white photographs and shows the people and streets of New York City far away from the hustle and bustle. The city life of the
metropolis is presented so closely that some pictures inevitably evoke a smile in the viewer. Penman literally catapults his viewer into
the scene with a refreshing directness and the feeling of really being present.
