Taking My Time PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Taking My Time free pdf Taking My Time is the first career retrospective on the work of renowned and influential American photographer Joel Meyerowitz (b.1938), including over 550 famous and previously unpublished photographs spanning his extensive 50-year career. Edited and sequenced with the photographer, this large-format publication comprises two volumes in a slipcase with special inserts. It includes photographs from Meyerowitz's complete oeuvre, including his colour and black and white street photographs from the 60s and 70s, the Cape Cod seascapes, his landmark images documenting Ground Zero after 9/11 and, more recently, his work in Tuscany and on the parks of New York City. Arguably one of America's greatest photographers working today, Meyerowitz is best known for his spontaneous photographs of the streets of New York from the 1960s and his pioneering photographs of colour, light and space. Instrumental in changing the attitude towards the use of colour photography from one of resistance to nearly universal acceptance, he is an innovator and teacher, inspiring a younger generation of photographers.

About Joel Meyerowitz

Joel Meyerowitz is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. He was born in New York in 1938 and went to Ohio to study painting and medical drawing at the State University. He moved back to New York to work in advertising as an art director-designer. He began photographing in 1962 as a 'street photographer' in the tradition of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, although he works primarily in colour. As an early advocate of colour photography in the mid-60s, Meyerowitz was instrumental in changing the attitude toward the use of colour photography from one of resistance to nearly universal acceptance and he is known for his pioneering photographs on the themes of architecture, light and space. His subject matter has altered from incidents on city streets shot with a small 35mm camera to the large format field photograph. His first book, Cape Light, is considered a classic work of colour photography and has sold more than 100,000 copies during its 30-year life. He is the author of 17 other books, including Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks and Aftermath, first published by Phaidon in 2006 and now re-published in 2011 on the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of 9/11. Meyerowitz is a two time Guggenheim fellow, a recipient of both the NEA and NEH awards, as well as a recipient of the Deutscher Fotobuchpreis. His work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, the Boston Museum of Fine Art and many others.
