This is a fascinating video by photographer Jeff Mermelstein, edited from over one million iPhone photographs. In this unique video Mermelstein answers questions about these overseen text messages, anonymity and the vast amount he’s learned from New Yorkers over the past few years.
Jeff Mermelstein was born in 1957 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, and studied at Rutgers College and the International Center of Photography. His career combines personal photographs with assignments for publications such as LIFE, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Magazine. In the tradition of other photographers such as Helen Levitt, he has photographed street life in New York City extensively as well as September 11th and its aftermath.
