Joel Meyerowitz

Text from Wikipedia

Meyerowitz, Joel
American, 1938-

Joel Meyerowitz (born 1938, New York City) is a photographer. He is a landscape photography revivalist, influenced in part by William Eggleston, and author of the seminal book on Cape Cod, Cape Light. Meyerowitz uses an 8x10 large format camera to produce luminous photographs of landscapes and people.

Meyerowitz graduated from Ohio State in 1959 with a degree in painting and medical illustration. He was inspired by Robert Frank's book The Americans, and took to the streets with a 35mm camera and black and white film. Early on he also drew inspiration from Eugene Atget and from whence the seeds of his most renowned work were planted. "In the pantheon of greats there is Robert Frank and there is Atget." Meyerowitz goes on to say that "those two visions of the world captivated me early on, opened me up."

He is also known for creating a photographic archive of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, and was the only photographer allowed unrestricted access to ground zero immediately following the attack.

Meyerowitz is a Guggenheim Fellow.
