This taxi driver has photographed his passengers for 20 years (22 pics)




For 20 years, this New York taxi driver has photographed his passengers in beautiful black and white portraits. An amazing project started in the 1980s, when  Ryan Weideman landed in New York. Unable to live as a photographer, he became a taxi driver to pay his rent, but never gave up his passion.

By photographing mainly his passengers, but also the streets of New York, Ryan Weideman offers us a tender and benevolent look at his adopted city. Today represented by the  Bruce Silverstein Gallery , Ryan Weideman published a first series of his photos in 1991 with the book  In My Taxi: New York After Hours .
