Joel Meyerowitz

(b.1938)

“Making any statement of your feelings is risky. It’s just like making pictures.”

Joel Meyerowitz is an American street, portrait and landscape photographer. He began photographing in color in 1962 and was an early advocate of the use of color during a time when there was significant resistance to the idea of color photography as serious art. In the early 1970s he taught photography at the Cooper Union in New York City.
