Joel Meyerowitz, in Two Parts
The Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York is now showing “Joel
Meyerowitz Part I and Part II,” which includes images from the 1960s
to 2011. Renowned for his crucial role in the establishment of color photography as a fine art, Meyerowitz has had his work shown in museums
and galleries around the world. This show, which coincides with a book
from Phaidon Press this month, includes intimate images of American life,
landscapes from Cape Cod to Tuscany, and a number of street scenes.
“Part I” runs through Dec. 1; “Part II” from December 7 to Jan. 5, 2013.
