Joel Meyerowitz
Joel Meyerowitz (born 1938, New York City) is a landscape photography revivalist, influenced in part by William Eggleston, and author of the seminal book on Cape Cod, Cape Light. He often uses an 8x10 large format camera to produce luminous photos of landscapes and people.
He graduated from Ohio State in 1959 with a degree in painting & illustration. Inspired by Robert Frank and Gary Winogrand, Meyerowitz took to the streets with a 35mm camera and black and white film. He drew inspiration from Eugène Atget and from whence the seeds of his most renowned work were planted. "In the pantheon of greats there is Robert Frank and there is Atget." Meyerowitz goes on to say that "those two visions of the world captivated me early on, opened me up."
