“Jeff Mermelstein is one of the great snapshot artists of all time, right up there with Garry Winogrand, Elliott Erwitt, Burk Uzzle, and Lee Friedlander. ”
—Glenn O’Brien, Artforum

“From Helen Levitt to Garry Winogrand to Philip-Lorca diCorcia, the tradition of New York street photography has attracted the medium’s best and brightest. It takes nerve to join their ranks these days, and Mermelstein has plenty of it. Working in color, he’s made some of the slyest, funniest street pictures of the past twenty-five years….”
—Vince Aletti, The New Yorker

“Jeff Mermelstein, I would say, is an absurdist with a sense of humor.”
—Max Kozloff

Twirl / Run, the second powerHouse artist’s book by Jeff Mermelstein, is a surprising combination of two extensive bodies of work—women twirling their hair and people on the run—whose dissonance creates a new way of observing our prevailing anxiety and sense of disorder.
