Ed Sherman

New York City
Edward Sherman has been photographing and excited about making images since he was fourteen years old. His photographic groundwork includes undergraduate fine arts studies at Brooklyn College, photographic course studies at the New School for Social Research, under Lisette Model and over forty years of photographic activity. He is a former United States Marine Corps photographer, awarded for professional achievement and photographic coverage. The years Sherman spent working as a photographic color lab technician keenly focused his visualization and technical skills. In 1980, Sherman expanded upon his artistic skills after completing an internship in broadcast journalism. He then worked as a video camera operator and editor for NBC News affiliate, WNYT in Albany, New York. The experience of videotaping and editing a broad-spectrum of news situations and a wide range of sporting events have helped shape Sherman’s visual story telling ability.
Among the highlights of Sherman’s photographic journey is working as a photographer for the New York City Police Department. Sherman’s assignment as police commissioner Raymond Kelly’s photographer was indeed an honor and a sign of high regard for his photographic skills. Among Sherman’s major photographic assignments during his NYPD career was photographing Pope Benedict XVI during his 2007 three-day visit to New York City. After 911, the world changed and Sherman and other NYPD photographers have had a major role in documenting the aftermath. Sherman’s current personal photographic projects include images of Harlem street scenes, musicians, artists and everyday urban &
rural life themes.
