We think of photography as pictures. And it is. But I think of photography as ideas. And do the pictures sustain your ideas or are they just good pictures? I want to have an experience in the world that is a deepening experience, that makes me feel alive and awake and conscious.

Joel Meyerowitz

Une étude sur les variations chromatiques : des scènes banales de Cape Code (un lieu de vacances familiales offrant un vaste paysage marin dans le Massachusetts) transformées par la lumière. Ce premier livre du portraitiste new-yorkais Joel Meyerowitz est un classique.

à propos de Joel Meyerowitz

6 mars 1938 -

I believe that street photography is central to the issue of photography—that it is purely photographic, whereas the other genres, such as landscape and portrait photography, are a little more applied, more mixed in the with the history of painting and other art forms.
