Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Perfect Strangers: New York City Street Photographs
Perfect Strangers by Melissa O’Shaughnessy captures the kinetic bustle of changing streets and passing crowds in New York City over the last seven years. This book contains more than ninety colour photographs and is accompanied by an introduction by Joel Meyerowitz.
A refreshing addition to the tradition of street photography
Melissa O’Shaughnessy has photographed daily on the streets of New York, capturing fleeting moments when the light, the people, and the chaos of the city collide in surprising, poignant, and humorous ways. As one of only a few women street photographers contributing to this dynamic genre, O’Shaughnessy enters the territory with clarity and a distinctly humanist eye.
'A celebration of contemporary city life, as well as an homage to the chaotic rush of New York City.'
Melissa O’Shaughnessy (born in Minneapolis, 1960) is a New York-based photographer. Her work is included in Colin Westerbeck and Joel Meyerowitz’s Bystander: A History of Street Photography (2017 edition) and has been featured in numerous exhibitions around the world. She is a member of UP Photographers. This is her first monograph.
