Porch, Provincetown by Joel Meyerowitz (1977)

The photograph titled “Porch, Provincetown” was taken by Joel Meyerowitz in 1977. The image depicts a porch of a coastal house during what appears to be twilight or a stormy day, as the overall lighting is dim. On the right-hand side, there is an open, expansive view of the sea under a heavy, overcast sky, suggesting an atmosphere of solitude. On the left, a portion of the house is visible with a warmly lit window, contrasting with the subdued natural light outside. The wooden floor and railings of the porch, along with a gate-like partition in the center, frame the composition. The capture of the natural light and carefully composed elements are characteristic of Meyerowitz’s work, which often explores color and light.
