Joel Meyerowitz (Phaidon 55s)
by Colin Westerbeck
Publisher's Description
"Joel Meyerowitz is most famous for pioneering the use of colour at a time when it was generally held that so-called 'artistic' photography could only be done in black and white. He is closely associated with Cape Cod, where he makes many of his still, contemplative images. He is also well known for his architectural photographs of The Arch in St. Louis. Yet he started off in the 1960s as a street photographer, following in the tradition of Robert Frank and Henri Cartier-Bresson. He spent a number of yeras taking pictures of the eventful life on New York's streets. His sense of humour really comes through in his images and the absurdities he captures often make you laugh out loud. There are a good deal of Meyerowitz's own personal anecdotes in the commentaries and they are extremely entertaining and illuminating."-the publisher.
