Doormen in Manhattan might just be some of the most unassumingly powerful people in the city. They’re asked to play the role of concierge, valet, and even maid. But with great responsibility comes great power—they often have access to the most private and privileged information of their wealthy residents. The presence of a doorman in residential buildings and hotels not only provides safety, but also signifies luxury and status. Sam Golanski, a Polish photographer who spent some time in New York, fell in love with the idea of the doormen and pays tribute to these unofficial Manhattan anthropologists through photographs.
