About Norman Borden Photography


About Norman Borden

I’m a street photographer. My pictures define who I am, how I think, what I like and, of course, how I see the world. While my primary interest is photographing people – their behavior, gestures and appearance – I also consider myself a social documentarian.

As I wander the city, I photograph the events and urban landscapes that are all part of the story of New York. My images are part of a visual diary; my record of something I saw on a particular day that spoke to my sensibilities. My process is simple enough – I sneak shots on the subway and stand on busy street corners to capture faces in the crowds. It reflects Gary Winogrand’s dictum: “I photograph to see what something looks like photographed.” And like Winogrand, William Klein, Jay Maisel and Elliott Erwitt before me, I’ve learned I can expect the unexpected.
