Street Photographer Captures New York City Romance Over 30 Years
When street photographer Matt Weber was a New York City taxi driver in the late '70s and early '80s, he witnessed "many unbelievable" events while on the job, he says, and got a firsthand look at the hardships and loneliness of life in a big city. So in 1984, Weber decided to record it all, buying his first camera, a $150 Canon AE-1, and snapping away from the window of his yellow cab. Over the past 30 years, in addition to documenting everything from fist fights to dancing in the streets the Big Apple, the 55-year-old has also captured a more romantic side of New York, photographing couples in love. "I must be a romantic, since the old black and white movies have always gotten the best of me," Weber tells Yahoo Shine. From PDA at a subway station to couples stealing kisses on bustling sidewalks, check out a few of the photographs from one of his collections, "Urban Romance." -- Ali Swank
