Peter Mendelson
"35th St. Miami Lifeguard Stand at Sunset," Contemporary Photograph, 24" x 36"

2017

$1,500

About

This contemporary coastal photograph by Peter Mendelson features a blue, orange, and yellow painted lifeguard stand in Miami, looking out over a muted teal ocean and a pink and yellow sunset. It is part of a series of photographs taken of the famous Miami lifeguard stands, which are all painted in vibrant colors. The print is made to order, please allow two to three weeks for printing and production. An additional presentation option is that of Acrylic - please contact us to request this style. Of this piece and series, the artist says, "Shape and color: two things that excite me when I am out photographing, and that come together so wonderfully in the iconic lifeguard stands of Miami Beach. Quirky and fun, but also built with a utilitarian safety purpose, these lifeguard stands take on even more personality as they age and become weather-beaten. The designs show influences not only of the art deco movement for which much of Miami Beach is known, but also call to mind space-age cartoons like the Jetsons, miniature golf courses, and the general tropical vibe of Miami." A New Englander in heart and soul, Peter Mendelson currently lives in Weston, Connecticut. After studying history at the University of Virginia and getting his law degree at the University of Pennsylvania, Peter moved to New York City to practice law, where he also started to gain an appreciation of urban architecture and street photography. Mostly self-taught, Peter further refined his vision through workshops conducted by various photographers, including Magnum photographer Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, landscape photographer Stephen Johnson, and NYC street photographer Phil Penman. Over time, he developed his particular style, using perspective, light, and color to capture the psychological power of urban and coastal spaces. Whether taken during his visit to the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas, his explorations of Miami Beach and the Maine coast, or even during commutes to and from New York City, his photographs focus on those things that are often overlooked, but which reward their viewers when given a second, deeper look. Peter’s work can be seen in exhibits and galleries in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
