The Candid Frame #19 - Joel Meyerowitz

Joel Meyerowitz is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. He was born in New York in 1938. He began photographing in 1962. He is a “street photographer” in the tradition of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, although he works exclusively in color. You can find out more about Joel and his work by visiting his website.

The only photographer who was granted unimpeded access to Ground Zero after September 13, 2001, Meyerowitz takes a meditative stance toward the work and workers there, systematically documenting the painful work of rescue, recovery, demolition and excavation.

Joel Meyerowitz recommends the works of Timothy O'Sullivan and William H. Jackson. He also suggests you check out a website dedicated to street photography called In-Public.
