Special Guest: Joel Meyerowitz


Saturday, May 08, 2004

Joel Meyerowitz has been a photographer for over 40 years. His book Cape Light (1979) — still in print after 25 years — is considered a classic in color photography. Meyerowitz’s images of the destruction and recovery at Ground Zero immediately after the September 11th 2001 attacks are some of the most powerful and stunning photographic documents from that period. An exhibit of his work called "After September 11: Images from Ground Zero" is currently touring to 200 cities in 60 countries. In addition to Cape Light, he is the author of several books including Tuscany: Inside the Light (2003) and Bystander: The History of Street Photography (1994).
