Gene Altman’s Vintage Street Photography Showcases Candid NYC in the 1960s

“What drew me to street photography was the thrill of candid photography.” explains photographer Gene Altman about his candid street photography from the 1960s in NYC. “I was drawn to it because I soon found that giving people time to pose usually masked their truth.”  Gene’s images are part of his book called Cityscapes: Intimate Strangers which brings many of these beautiful candid moments to the fore. Gene moved to NYC a long time ago in pursuit of becoming a full time photographer. There were bouts in between where he went without work and sometimes got depressed. So in order to cope, he went out and photographed the people in the streets.
