On 2nd December 2017, Galerie Bene Taschen in Cologne will open its first exhibition with the New York photographer Jeff Mermelstein. 

In his award-winning series, SideWalk, Mermelstein takes visitors back to to the ' 90s, and '2000s,  with his fleeting, charming, bizarre, and vivid snapshots of life in New York City.

Mermelstein's work has become increasingly known in Germany following the major LEICA retrospective "Augen auf!", which was shown in Hamburg's Deichtorhallen (2014/2015) and at C / O Berlin (2015).

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. He has photographed street life in New York City extensively as well as September 11th and its aftermath. Mermelstein has received the Aaron Siskind Foundation Individual Photographer’s Fellowship and the European Publishers Award for Photography. Mermelstein has taught at the International Center of Photography since 1988.
