Jeff Mermelstein is with no doubt one of the most brilliant street photographers of our times. A large part of his work is dedicated to the streets of New York City where he lives and works. He captures the spirit of this city like no one else, with both humor and tenderness. In 2003, he gave an interview to the TV series “Media matters” where he explains his approach and why he loves so much taking pictures in New York. I found the interview (see the three following videos) on public-life.org, a website that I strongly encourage you to visit if you are interested in street photography.
