Former Taxi Driver’s Candid Shots of New York Over Three Decades
New York photographer Matt Weber has been pursuing his fascination with the Big Apple for more than three decades. For six years he worked as a taxi cab driver and witnessed the city from a unique perspective. Eventually, he stepped out of his cab and ventured into the streets to pursue his true passion for documenting his experiences through his camera lens
The Urban Prisoner is an extensive black and white series that captures a true side of everyday life in New York. Throughout his career, Weber used a classic approach to street photography in order to convey a sense of raw emotion. He never intervened with his subjects and, as a result, he was able to capture real moments within urban settings. In contrast to his series, Urban Romance, The Urban Prisoner focuses on a wide range of emotions—love, violence, energy, monotony, and stillness—that can be found throughout the city on an ordinary day in New York in the 1980’s, 1990’s, and 2000’s.

Meet Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year 2014, which is “not to be confused with ‘radiant orchard,’ a mysterious psychological phenomenon that causes 20-year-olds to somehow enjoy the Lower East Side on weekend evenings.”
"It’s a daring color for men. Bold men might try it in a shirt—solid or print—while more timid types might just use it as an accent color in neckties and socks.”
'Those meeker still will purchase radiant orchid keychains, toothbrushes, or watchbands—something small and non-threatening. The men too fearful for even a tiny accessory might, while gripping tightly the hand of a loved one, simply Google 'radiant orchid' and allow its combative womanliness to, just for a moment, color their computer screens. 'Ahh!' they’ll scream. 'AhhhHHHHhhhHHHHHHhh!'”
