Joel Meyerowitz started making spontaneous colour photographs on the streets of New York in 1962 with friends such as Tony Ray-Jones and Garry Winogrand. He has since become known as one of the most important street photographers of his generation. Instrumental in changing attitudes towards colour photography in the 1970s, he is known as a pioneer, an important innovator and a highly influential teacher.
"Part photo book and part advice book, this title gives readers a
peek into the mind of legendary street photographer Joel
Meyerowitz....Meyerowitz's enthusiasm for his craft seeps through
the prose and is punctuated by the colorful street photographs that
he has made throughout his career. It's a great quick read and one
that you might find yourself reaching for whenever inspiration
starts to wane." - Digital Photography Review,
