COVID New York: Jeff Mermelstein

In March, Jeff Mermelstein was commissioned by ICP as one of five alumni to make work in response to the COVID-19 crisis. He has been photographing the streets on New York City for nearly 40 years, but due to the pandemic, he was forced to photograph pretty much exclusively on the streets of Brooklyn, something he very rarely did before.

Mermelstein joins ICP’s Managing Director of Programs David Campany for a three-part lecture series beginning at 1 PM ET to discuss his career and the practice of street photography. Learn more about #ICPLessons and register before it’s too late at icp.org/events

Photography is about more than cameras, lenses, apps, and technical jargon. Part observation, part discipline, part timing, and part luck, photography is the art of documenting one's unique visual perspective.

It is, in a word, the art of seeing.

One month has passed since the United States held its elections on November 3. During Election Day, and the days that followed, these 4 alumni of ICP’s One Year Certificate programs—Roshni Khatri (Doc 19), Poupay Jutharat (CP 16), Bing Guan (Doc 17), and Ximena Natera (Doc 20)—photographed the scenes around them. From deserted streets on Election Night, to an outpouring of people on the night of November 7th, these images give a glimpse of the aftermath of the 2020 elections.
