SYNOPSIS

For more than 25 years, former cabdriver Matt Weber has documented the lives of his fellow New Yorkers through candid photographs. There is no telling how many stories Weber has attempted to capture since he first started taking pictures out of the window of the cab he used to drive. But his quarter century-plus devotion to candidly depicting the lives of his fellow New Yorkers, many of them from the fringes of society, has yielded a remarkable document of a New York that most of us will never experience.
