Jeff Mermelstein has a unique affinity for capturing people in moments of distinctly human idiosyncrasy. He has published numerous books on street photography, and now holds a teaching position at The International Center for Photography. Often called an absurdist, Mermelstein is touted as the author of the best New York novel, Sidewalk, an assertion that implies his photos truly tell the story of the street. He lives and works in New York City.
