Comments on: Joel Meyerowitz Interview (Part 1) http://2point8.whileseated.org/2007/12/03/joel-meyerowitz-interview-part-1/ A wide-open view of the practice of street photography by Michael David Murphy, While Seated. Thu, 15 Dec 2011 18:48:58 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.10 By: “DEAR LEADER” » One bird, two fingers.., Julian Richards interviewed. http://2point8.whileseated.org/2007/12/03/joel-meyerowitz-interview-part-1/comment-page-1/#comment-43244 Wed, 12 Dec 2007 20:01:37 +0000 http://2point8.whileseated.org/?p=284#comment-43244 […] in New York City. After a mutual acquaintance introduced us I thought it instructive to follow in David’s footsteps and start running interviews. I was not disappointed in the least but rather felt that I should […]

Meyerowitz photos of Ground Zero pretty much suck, and all the bs he spouts trying to justify the work and become the de-facto historical documenter of the tragedy is a travesty. His work Cape Light is fantastic – he should have left Ground Zero to the real photojournalists.

Some of his comments are very sharp and enlightening, others not so -verging on the silly. But the pix are really mixed up, jumping from color to black and white and back to color, all the while changing formats and subject matter, and only following a chronological order. Not exactly what I would call a decent monograph. I think that Steidl could do something wonderful with his street series.

A more complete set I have seen of that particular work was published in Sally Eauclaire’s “American Independents” where you have nine consecutive pictures of his “Out to Lunch” series, including the famous one with the tiger.

The phaidon/colin westerbeck book perhaps?

He surely deserves a decent retrospective monograph.

Mr Meyerowitz was and is, articulate and eloquent. Some of my favorite attributes in a primate. I also discovered his street photography. To my undying shame I had no idea he was such a great street photographer. Right up there with the very best. As for Mr. Murphy, once again, “great job”.

I really enjoyed his method of arranging photos. I have an excuse to try it out soon and I hope it helps me. Can’t wait for part two.

His contributions to The Genius of Photography, were some of the highpoints of the show, in my opinion. Looking forward to part II of your interview…
