Danish photographer, Daniel Hoffmann, visited New York City a few years ago where he became fascinated with life on the streets. He liked it so much that he visited the city again last year to make images for a a new street photography book (his second). And I must say the results are fantastic.
As a visitor from another country Daniel looks at New York through a very different lengths. And the results show in his work. The street photography alone is well worth the time to read the book. But he also goes a step further and uses it as a teaching tool. One of my favorite techniques is that he adds.
OI really like that Daniel includes contact sheets with several of the photos. It gives you an opportunity to see his vision of the scene as the shot comes together.
The book was originally published in Danish, then Spanish and most recently in English.
The book is free, however Daniel asks for donation which makes sense because New York ain’t cheap. It’s worth every penny. Here’s a link to the eBook page on Daniel’s website. The new book is the one on the second row with the cover photo of a man smoking a cigar. I’ve included a photo of the cover in this article so you will know which one to choose.
You can also get the book through Daniel’s Facebook page.
I highly recommend you download the book and give Daniel a donation. It will be a perfect way to spend a rainy day.
