Joel Meyerowitz: Where I Find Myself

A Lifetime Retrospective

Joel Meyerowitz

£45.00

Where I Find Myself is the first major single book retrospective of Joel Meyerowitz, one of America’s leading photographers. As the title indicates, it is organized in inverse chronological order and spans the photographer’s whole career to date.

It covers all of Meyerowitz’s great projects: his work inspired by the artist Morandi, his work on trees, his exclusive coverage of Ground Zero, his trips in the footsteps of Robert Frank across the US, his experiments comparing colour and black and white pictures, and of course his iconic street photography work.

This book’s text is written by Joel Meyerowitz himself.

Joel Meyerowitz is also the author of Bystander, with Colin Westerbeck

The photographer’s magnum opus opens in the present day, with his most recent body of work and unfolds in reverse chronological order, leading us through a spellbinding life in photography that is simply unparalleled.” Feature Shoot

Necessary because of its size and scope. Necessary because of the way it holds the aesthetic of the artist in the air.” LensCulture
