Nina Berman – Street Photography in New York

“Street photographers are like dancers –  you need to be light on your feet”

These are the words of Nina Berman, an award winning documentary photographer.

“Street photography is an endless pursuit of a perfect moment that you can’t really imagine in your head, but when you see somehow you realise that’s it. You need to fit into the flow and the energy of the street”

As part of the Nikon 1 V2 speed project, Nina took to the streets of Manhattan, New York — a city already steeped in street photography history — to catch the buzz of the city and frenzy of its workers as they emerge from subways and stations at rush hour.

This video gives you an insight into how she works and also some breathtaking views of the city that never sleeps.
