Text of Joel meyerowitz

  • 1. JOEL MEYEROWITZJoel Meyerowitz was born in NewYork on March 6th1938. He first startedphotography in 1962, he is a streetphotographer and does portrait andlandscapes.He photographed the aftermath of9/11, he was the only photographerallowed restricted access to groundzero immediately following theattack.

2. This is a picture by JoelMeyerowitz, it is of the aftermathof 9/11. This photo was took inNovember 2001, it shows stairsthat would have been used bypeople trying to escape theattack. In the background youcan see other buildings that havebeen effected by the event. Heused the stairs as his main focalpoint.The composition on all of JoelMeyerowitz images is thought outquite well , with most landscapephotography composition is themost important as you have toknow what you want to show andwhat is going to be the mainfocus.COMPOSITION 3. Joel Meyerowitz is an urban landscapephotographer. He photographs buildingsand city surroundings rather than thecountryside. He tends to photograph usingdull colours looking images, I think this isbecause the places that he chooses tophotograph are ones that have had quitebad events happen in them. In some of hisphotographs there is usually some light, Ithink this is to show that he isphotographing places that are being putback to normal, a slight suggestion thatyou can come back from something sohorrific happening.Joel Meyerowitz uses techniques such asrule of thirds and depth of field in hisimages. He also uses a quick exposure forhis images to get the duller look to them.STYLE 4. STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSESI like this piece of work by JoelMeyerowitz because of the way hehas captured the rubble as well asall the buildings not affected by theattack. I think it is interesting andbrave of him to photograph theaftermath of these attacks, as theyaffected so many people in somany different ways and I think itwould have been hard to seem theoutcome of all that. 5.
