Jeff Mermelstein’s fantastic sidewalk – The Eye of Photography

In SideWalk, American photographer Jeff Mermelstein takes visitors back to the 1990s, and 2000s, with his fleeting, charming, bizarre, and vivid snapshots of life in New York City, where he has lived and worked most of his life. Prowling the streets with a constantly drawn camera and an alert eye, Mermelstein documented the mood, the characters and the often-bizarre sights that made the city so unique. Everyday situations and ordinary people are the primary focus of his work. His idiosyncratic images are never composed, and are instead spontaneous records of unaware people going about their everyday lives.
