Featured: Steven Bollman
Steven Bollman takes B+W photos, shooting film, to record ordinary people in extraordinary moments. Born in New York City in 1961, his photographic odyssey began at age 12 in his cousin’s darkroom. Shy but obsessively curious about people and the world around him, photography was a perfect fit, allowing quiet involvement through observation.
Bollman has a self-published photo book, entitled, Almost True, available at the end of December. Thirty years in the making, but covering just a few seconds in real time, Almost True will be published by F8 Books. The diverse images included in Almost True were taken in Cuba during Fidel Castro’s time, at religious processions in Sicily, and during the elections in Haiti in 1987, as well as street photos from New York, Oakland, Mississippi, Santa Fe, Spain, Italy, and Portugal.
