Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Joel Meyerowitz - NYT

I found this interesting, thought others might as well:


From what the article says, he shot this all with two Leicas, one loaded with color, one with B&W.

Thanks for this, I've always liked these early color photographers. Mostly during this period (early to middle 60s) color was for family photos. Joel was a color pioneer.

Thanks for this.

I always wonder when I see photos from this era (not to take away from Joel as I love his composition as well) how much of my aesthetic pleasure from them comes from the way film of that era rendered color. I really love this look.

I recently watch a video on youtube with him working the streets of NY, it was a pleasure to watch for sure.

Thank you for posting, Tim.

Last Friday I visited the Beetles+Huxley gallery to see the Meyerowitz photos, which was free. I wasn't disappointed: highly recommended.

I’m a regular visitor to Beetles+Huxley, who specialise in photography print sales. They are always welcoming and put on a good show. Meyerowitz’s photos are superbly printed and mounted, and there are catalogues and books for sale not just of his work but of previous exhibitors. The Meyerowitz exhibition is sponsored by Leica.

What did surprise me was that of the images for sale, one of my favourites – Fallen Man, 1967 – was one of the least expensive.

More from the Beetles+Huxley website here:

If I'm not mistaken, his recent work is still life. He keeps changing all the time.
