Publisher's Description

Storytelling, the use of color and of black and white, personal and social issues; these are just a few of the many themes that the American photographer Joel Meyerowitz discusses with the photography critic Alessia Tagliaventi. This book results in a combination of text and images which constitutes both a complex examination of Joel Meyerowitz's work and a manual on the reading of photography itself.

Joel Meyerowitz is an award-winning photographer born in New York. He is a 'street photographer' and an early advocate of color photography. His first book, Cape Light, is considered a classic work of color photography and has sold more than 150,000 copies during its thirty-year life.

Alessia Tagliaventi is a scholar of photographic history and editor of Contrasto. She has curated several photography books and catalogues. She is author of critical essays for numerous publications, among those My brother's keeper: Documentary Photographers and Human Rights, Master Photographers, Shadows of War, and Photoshow. She also teaches courses in the history of photography.
