photography monographs

In 1966, Joel Meyerowitz took an initiatory journey around Europe. Upon his return to New York, he submitted his project to the Head of Photography at MoMA, leading to his monographic exhibition My European Trip. Meyerowitz toured around Spain in 1966 an 1967 and took hundreds of pictures that comprise an exceptional document of 1960's Spain. He admits that this time in Spain was precisely what marked his creative turning point as a photographer - indeed this is the one period when he takes both colour and black and white photographs before fully turning to colour photography. AUTHOR: Joel Meyerowitz (New York, 1938) is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions worldwide. As an early advocate of colour photography, Meyerowitz was key in changing the attitude toward the use of colour in the medium. His first book, Cape Light, is considered a classic work of colour photography and has sold more than 150,000 copies. He has published 20 other books, including Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks (Aperture) and his retrospective book, Taking My Time (Phaidon). 100 images
