    Joel Meyerowitz Retrospective Featured in Time Magazine

    To mark the 50th anniversary of when he first took up the camera, Joel compiled hundreds of images in a two-volume visual biography titled, Joel Meyerowitz: Taking My Time. The images are arranged by when they were taken, with earlier snapshots at the beginning of the collection. "I wanted to stick strictly to the chronology as precisely as I could and show my own development," reflects Meyerowitz. A story on Joel's inspirational half-century long career and his ability to capture serendipitous moments recently appeared in Time magazine.

    Beginning Nov. 2, Joel's work will be displayed in a two-part solo show at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York City.

    Joel Meyerowitz: Pioneer of Color Photography in America

    "Starburst: Color Photography in America 1970-1980" is showing now at the Cincinnati Art Museum, featuring artists such as William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, Mitch Epstein, and Joel Meyerowitz. Starburst takes viewers on a journey through the explosion and development of color photography in America. Once considered less of an art form than black and white photography, the color photography in Starburst addresses the initial controversy surrounding color film and how pioneering artists turned it into high art. In case one can't make it to the midwest, the work of Stephen Shore, Joel Meyerowitz, and William Egglestone will also be on view at the Edwynn Houk Gallery starting Thursday, February 25th.



    Curator Kevin Moore writes, "Color photography of the 1970s happened in a starburst... an intensely destructive and creative environment." Meyerowitz, along with Shore, Eggleston, and others, laid the groundwork for the growth and acceptance of color photography. At the Cincinatti Art Museum and the Edwyn Houk Gallery, people can see where it all began.

    Interested viewers are invited to attend the following events:
