Overview

This monograph is an introduction to the major themes and key images of American photographer Joel Meyerowitz, illustrated with 55 chronologically-presented images that offer a fresh insight into his career. This book covers all genres of Meyerowitz's work, including his black-and-white street photography as well as the color Cape Cod seascapes which established him as a true innovator, teacher and pioneer of photography. An introductory essay by Colin Westerbeck discusses Meyerowitz's life and work and places him both in the context of his time and within the history of photography.

Meyerowitz was instrumental in changing the attitude toward the use of color photography from one of resistance to nearly universal acceptance. After the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York, he was the only photographer granted unimpeded access to Ground Zero where he systematically documented the work of demolition and excavation, rescue and recovery. He has been awarded the title Photographer of the Year by the Friends of Photography, San Francisco. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has been exhibited and published worldwide.
