Twirl / Run, the second powerHouse artist's book by Jeff Mermelstein, is a surprising combination of two extensive bodies of work -women twirling their hair and people on the run - whose dissonance creates a new way of observing our prevailing anxiety and sense of disorder.

Guided by the adventurous formalism of Robert Frank and the Czech photographer, Josef Koudelka, Jehsong Baak has pushed beyond their legacy of powerful, wandering images, building his own lexicon of complex visual epiphanies, magical happenstance, and emotional synchronicity. These images, from Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Chicago, and New York, are at once new and familiar, private and universal, inviting and dissociative. They envelope the viewer with poignancy intricately imbedded in images of strangers, friends and lovers and in self-portraits clearly steeped in personal histories.
