As part of the Nikon 1 V2 speed project, Nina Berman takes us to the streets of Manhattan, a city already steeped in street photography history. Whilst walking and taking pictures with her new camera, she shows us how she catches the buzz of the city and frenzy of its workers as they emerge from subways and stations at rush hour.


“Street-photography is kind of an endless pursuit of a perfect moment, that you cant really imagine in your head, but when you see it somehow you realize: “That’s it.” You develop a sort of hyper alertness and you try and fit into the flow to the energy of the street.”
