Tampa, FL – The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) is proud to announce its upcoming exhibition, Joel Meyerowitz: Confluence, 1964-1984,  featuring the iconic works of photographer Joel Meyerowitz. Opening on March 24, 2024, and running through July 7, 2024, this exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience the visionary artistry of a pioneer in the
field of color photography.

Renowned for his innovative use of color to capture the essence of urban life and natural landscapes, Joel Meyerowitz emerged amidst the artistic landscape in the 1960s. While other photographers primarily focused on the monochromatic realm of black and white photography,
Meyerowitz chose to infuse his imagery with vibrant hues, bringing a different life and emotion into his compositions.

The exhibition presents a captivating confluence of Meyerowitz's early works. It showcases both black and white and color photographs, from the bustling streets of New York City teeming with eccentric characters, to the shores of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, lit by the play of light and shadow.

“Joel Meyerowitz was a pioneer of color photography and he fills each frame with extraordinary vibrancy, light, and life.” Says Executive Curator Robin O’Dell “This exhibition is not to be missed by anyone who wants to be reminded of the importance of paying attention to the world around us in big and small ways.”

Selected from the generous gift of 374 prints donated to FMoPA in 2021 by an anonymous benefactor, the photographs featured in the exhibition exemplify Meyerowitz’s mastery of the medium. Meyerowitz’s photographs have been featured in over 350 exhibitions in galleries and museums all over the world. He is a two-time Guggenheim Fellow and has published 54 photography books.

Experience Joel Meyerowitz: Confluence, 1964-1984 at FMoPA from March 24 to July 7, 2024, with admission priced at $12. Find FMoPA at 1630 E. 7th Avenue, Tampa, FL 33605. For further details, visit www.FMoPA.org
