A Retrospective of Joel Meyerowitz: American Street Photography

Although photographer Joel Meyerowitz is initially influenced by greats Robert Frank and Henri-Cartier Bresson, his use of color photography for street shoots earned him his own name as one of the great mid-20th century photographers. Both working in monochrome and color, Meyerowitz is famous for his experimentation of the Kodachrome film as seen in his photos “Cape of Light (1979)” and “Bystanders (1994)”.
