About Joel Gendelman
Joel began photographing at the age of 16 on the Lower East Side of New York. He was shortly exhibited at a local photography gallery and has been composing pictures since.
Joel’s first love is portraiture. He cherishes the moment when the subject, the scene, and the artist are woven together. Joel also treasures landscapes where the elements of sky, building, and earth come together to create a unified emotion.
The photographers whom Joel most emulate are Diane Arbus and Lisettee Model for how they captured humanity in the most unlikely places. He also studied the work of Karsh, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Edward Weston, and Cartier Bresson.
