  3. 3. Reviews Meyerowitz, Joel American, 1938- American art photographer Since the late 1970s Meyerowitz has been known for his artistic color photographs that characteristically observe the effects of light and shadow, often on a place photographed from exactly the same spot. Text from The Photography Encyclopedia
  4. 4. You look at it [a photograph] and all around the real world is humming, buzzing and moving, and yet in this little frame there is stillness that looks like the world. That connection, that collision, that interfacing, is one of the most astonishing things we can experience.
  5. 5. I think about photographs as being full, or empty. You picture something in a frame and it's got lots of accounting going on in it--stones and buildings and trees and air--but that's not what fills up a frame. You fill up the frame with feelings, energy, discovery, and risk, and leave room enough for someone else to get in there.

  8. 8. Park Panorama My Critique: The thing I like most about Joel Meyerowitzs work is his ability to find and shoot out Of the ordinary scenes that make you think and have to look twice at the print. I like this picture Because it incorporates both his styles, simple and city scene. On the left the lighthouse Represents his simple shooting style and on the right the bridge represents what he is most Known for shooting, street shots.

It consists of 8,000 images.
