Photographer Matt Weber's first monograph. Ben Lifson, author of The Man in the Crowd: The Uneasy Streets of Garry Winogrand, among other works, provided an introduction. Weber first started taking photographs while working as a NYC taxi driver. He soon discovered that the idea of seeing something and recording it was really what he'd been doing all along, mentally framing shots as he drove around town on twelve hour shifts. Gradually his confidence began to build, and he began to see himself as a photographer with a taxi, rather than a cabbie with a camera.
