Phil Penman at the book signing - great attendance at the Whitewall Store in Düsseldorf

On February 24, 2024, visitors to the WhiteWall store in Düsseldorf experienced an extraordinary event when renowned New York photographer Phil Penman presented his fascinating work. The event was very well attended and the atmosphere on the premises was electrifying.

Phil began with an inspiring talk about his personal career and the life of a photographer. He gave insights into his techniques and approach to street photography. His answer to the question of what makes a good picture was particularly impressive: for him, a picture is successful if it places the viewer in the situation and creates an emotional response.

The audience was also keen to hear Phil's views on post-processing his images. He explained that he does make minimal corrections with the help of AI technology, but at the same time emphasized that the original image must already be of high quality. He did not consider himself talented enough for extensive post-processing.

After his talk, Phil took plenty of time to answer the audience's questions, resulting in a lively dialog between him and the audience. The event ended with a book signing where visitors had the opportunity to meet Phil Penman in person and have their copies of his photo book "New York Street Diaries" signed.

Phil Penman's work not only shows the fascinating dynamics of New York City, but also the quiet and contemplative moments that exist amidst the hustle and bustle. His photo book is a testament to the times, capturing the essence of the city during historic events such as September 11 and the COVID-19 pandemic. With his impressive black and white photographs, he brings viewers closer to the vibrant metropolis in a very special way.
