Masters of Photography, Joel Meyerowitz
The 'Masters of Photography' series is a new approach to photography how-to. Each volume is dedicated to the work of one key photographer who, through a series of bite-sized lessons and ideas, tells you everything you always wanted to know about their approach to taking photographs. From their influences, ideas and experiences, to tech tips and best shots.
The series begins with Joel Meyerowitz, who will teach you, among other essentials: how to use a camera to reclaim the streets as your own, why you need to watch the world always with a sense of possibility, how to set your subjects at ease, and the importance of being playful and of finding a lens that suits your personality. Praise for Joel Meyerowitz's retrospective, Where I Find Myself: "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 "More than just a career retrospective, Meyerowitz's book is a personal celebration of photography as an art form."
