Von Robin Benson am 4. Juli 2012
Format: Taschenbuch
Phaidon are to be congratulated on their fine 55 photo series and now they seem to have corrected the major fault of all the original titles: at six by a little over five inches they were just too small. This particularly applies to the Meyerowitz title because so many of his photos are full of detail and when they appear one to a page at five inches wide the essence of the image is almost lost. This title is now available in the bigger 55 format.

The photos run from 1962 to 1999 (the book came out in 2001) and the first three are in colour when Meyerowitz was first experimenting with this new medium (for him) out on the street. Several photos show his ability to be at the right place to capture some quirky happening: a man getting tangled up with some cabling or a swimmer jumping of a bridge in Central Park while another photographer does a fashion shoot on the bridge. Some of the shots reveal his fascination with light and how it can change the mood of a colour photo (he explored this more in the Cape Light book).

Overall I thought this was a fine selection of his work. Colin Westerbeck contributes a thirteen page essay and Meyerowitz provides a commentary on the photos as you turn the pages. This is certainly a plus because in most photo books the images are interpreted by anyone except the photographer. The printing uses a 175 screen on a reasonable matt art and this being a Phaidon book there is the usual odd bit of design: the page numbers are in a light face type and positioned at the bottom of each left-hand page near the gutter.

Better than whatever Russ has to say about it. 11. Mai 2009
Von J. Thurman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Evidently the last reviewer's main claim to fame is making relative statements seem like objective ones. Certainly the words he used don't put him in the same class as regular smart people. Unfortunately, the last reviewer has added self-inflating comments to his review of the book.
The combination of useless opinions and self righteous babble will leave the reader with a feeling that taking the time to read his review was a mistake. Nice name though.

Joel Meyerowitz is in the same class as Gerry Winogrand, Robert Frank, and Cartier-Bresson, but his work is different. He was one of the first supporters of color photography when there was heavy resistance against it as a true art form. He paved the way for the wide spread acceptance of color as well as making the style of street photography more defined. Meyerowitz was the only photographer given unrestricted access to the aftermath of 9/11. Most people so highly regarded aren't just "mediocre," but rather his life as a photographer is very significant to the field and any photographer can learn something about their art through his story.

Phaidon are to be congratulated on their fine 55 photo series and now they seem to have corrected the major fault of all the original titles: at six by a little over five inches they were just too small. This particularly applies to the Meyerowitz title because so many of his photos are full of detail and when they appear one to a page at five inches wide the essence of the image is almost lost. This title is now available in the bigger 55 format (and this review appears on both sizes)

The photos run from 1962 to 1999 (the book came out in 2001) and the first three are in color when Meyerowitz was first experimenting with this new medium (for him) out on the street. Several photos show his ability to be at the right place to capture some quirky happening: a man getting tangled up with some cabling or a swimmer jumping of a bridge in Central Park while another photographer does a fashion shoot on the bridge.

Not the greatest 20. März 2008
Von Russ Lewis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Evidently Joel's main claim to fame is his relationship with Garry Winogrand. Certainly the photographs in this book don't put him in the same class as Winogrand or Winogrand's other contemporaries. Unfortunately, Joel has added self-congratulatory comments to the pictures in this book. The combination of mediocre photographs and unfortunate comments is likely to leave the reader with a feeling that adding this book to his photographic library was a mistake. Nice cover though.
