Mermelstein is internationally known for his colour photographs taken on the fast streets of New York.

Following the demolition of his flat to make way for the Barclays Center, the famous photographer was commissioned to hold over 350 events in the glittering new Arena. Thus, for four years, Mermelstein is free to photograph the new congregation formed around the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, full of pilgrims to the temporary shrine of Jay-Z and Barbara Streisand.

The author manages to bring the spirit of New York streets into interior photography, capturing grotesque scenes of ketchup spilled on the floor and characters that seem to come straight out of 1980s cinema.

His crisp and candid photographs allow us a peek into a mundane worldliness that is often unapproachable.
