George Forss (born 1941) is an American photographer known for his black and white New York City images.
Forss, the son of poor alcoholic parents, spent five years of his life living in an orphanage. He became a self-taught photographer after being introduced to photography at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Forss had been taking photographs on the streets of New York City and selling $5 prints since 1973 on the sidewalks outside of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art before being discovered by Life magazine photographer David Duncan in 1980. Forss has photographed city-scapes and time-capsule moments captured in detail using rudimentary equipment extensively. Forss has since been praised Ansel Adams and Henri Cartier-Bresson for his outstanding imagery.
