Pedestrian Photographs

Paperback
Pedestrian Photographs showcases the keen eye of photographer Larry Merrill, and includes forty-eight color plates - mainly created between 2004 and 2007 - depicting street life in Manhattan's east side and Central Park. Introductory essays by noted author Wendell Berry and by the University of Rochester Memorial Art Gallery's chief curator, Marjorie Searl, contextualize Merrill's work, which can also be found in the collections of the George Eastman House, Yale Art Gallery, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Israel Museum. Merrill has photographed for the World Bank in Bhutan, Haiti, Peru, and Senegal, and was guest curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Uris Education Gallery exhibition, Photographs in Light. The work in this volume is on display at the Memorial Art Gallery, where Merrill has been longtime director of the Gallery's Creative Workshop.
