COLOURING REALITY: Joel MEYEROWITZ at La Maison de la Photographie

 

JOEL MEYEROWITZ – A RETROSPECTIVE


January 23rd till April 7th, 2013.

Joel Meyerowitz’s colour work revolutionised the history of photography.

Born in 1938 in New York, he began photographing the city in black and white with a 35mm camera after meeting Robert Frank in 1962.

In the mid 1960s, a long trip to Europe marked a turning point in his career and enabled him to affirm his personal style.

Only in the 1970s did he begin working exclusively in colour.

Joel Meyerowitz developed a highly individual style, capturing “the decisive instant”.
