Description

Where I Find Myself is the first major single book retrospective of one of America's leading photographers. It is organized in inverse chronological order and spans the photographer's whole career to date: from Joel Meyerowitz's most recent picture all the way back to the first photograph he ever took. The book covers all of Joel Meyerowitz's great projects: his work inspired by the artist Morandi, his work on trees, his exclusive coverage of Ground Zero, his trips in the footsteps of Robert Frank across the US, his experiments comparing color and black and white pictures, and of course his iconic street photography work. Joel Meyerovitz is incredibly eloquent and candid about how photography works or doesn't, and this should be an inspiration to anyone interested in photography.

Review quote

"After over half a century of making pictures, Meyerowitz is noted as one of the most influential photographers living today. A new book titled brings together his tremendous archive to create a portrait of not only America during the 20th and early 21st centuries, but also a prolific artist with a lifetime of groundbreaking work." BuzzFeed "More than just a career retrospective, Meyerowitz's book is a personal celebration of photography as an art form." Publishers Weekly "After 40 years Meyerowitz continues to entice and enthrall with a consistency of vision that reshapes subject matter in his own light.If you are a fan of Meyerowitz's work and especially of Cape Light, this lifetime retrospective will be a treasured addition." New York Journal of Books "So let me say it plainly: Joel Meyerowitz's Where I Find Myself is a compelling, wonderful, deeply pleasing collection of an essential photographer's work. [it] is a necessary book. Necessary because of its size and scope. Necessary because of the way it holds the aesthetic of the artist in the air." LensCulture "Joel Meyerowitz: Where I Find Myself is a piece de resistance, a masterful feat of publishing that sets the bar as high as it can possibly reach. The photographer's magnum opus opens in the present day, with his most recent body of work and unfolds in reverse chronological order, leading us through a spellbinding life in photography that is simply unparalleled."
