Jeff Mermelstein at Rick Wester Fine Art

A New York street photographer in the rough-and-tumble tradition of Weegee, Garry Winogrand, Joel Meyerowitz, and Lee Friedlander, Mermelstein is alert to the idiosyncrasies of people in public.

"Twirl / Run," as his new show and book are both titled, has "an off-the-wallness" that takes some getting used to. Going through years of accumulated prints, he discovered an unusual number that included girls absent-mindedly twirling locks of hair and others of people (mostly men) sprinting on busy sidewalks. For this project, he's combined the two groups of pictures into a weirdly random view of urban life: aimless, hurried, distracted, driven.
