While most artistic photographers of the 1960s focused entirely on black and white, Joel Meyerowitz (b. 1938) bridged a gap by exploring contemporaneously two very different bodies of work. His energetic black and white New York streetscapes are celebrated for their quirky characters and architectural detail, at the same time his ethereal photographs of Cape Cod, Massachusetts focused on the singular light and seascapes of the unique peninsula. By 1972, Meyerowitz permanently adopted color photography, so that even his urban images explore the tones and hues of city life. Together this collection of work explores the visual gatherings of a master at his best. On View March 24 – July 7, 2024Read More
