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.
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
