Meyerowitz on the World Trade Center Archive

I saw Joel Meyerowitz give a presentation tonight for the archive of photographs he created of Ground Zero, a selection of which has been compiled into this book. I went to his presentation not just because Meyerowitz is a well-known street photographer, but of the thoughtfulness and articulation he displayed in these two interviews with … Continue reading Meyerowitz on the World Trade Center Archive

Joel Meyerowitz Video

If you’re looking for a quick and dirty street photography tutorial (rather than this long-winded series), check out this quick video of Joel Meyerowitz in action. The best part of the video isn’t the pictures themselves, it’s Meyerowitz’s enthusiasm: “the incredible replenishment of surprise at what comes your way (while street shooting) allows you to … Continue reading Joel Meyerowitz Video

Meyerowitz, Machines and Parades

I’ve been looking at a lot of Joel Meyerowitz’s work lately, and reading interviews. He’s tremendously articulate when speaking about photography, and particularly about street shooting. I don’t want this to turn into a place where I only post quotes, but, well, hey. Meyerowitz explains how to use fast shutter speeds to your compositional advantage, … Continue reading Meyerowitz, Machines and Parades

Magnum Korea – a 2point8 Reader’s Response

Editor’s Note from MDM: I’m pleased to offer this examination of Magnum’s current “Korea” project, from a friend of 2point8 who lives in Asia. This reader spent a fair bit of time considering Magnum’s project, inside and out, and I’m glad I can share their perspective with you here. While it may not be customary … Continue reading Magnum Korea – a 2point8 Reader’s Response

Arlene Gottfried, Sometimes Overwhelming, the Interview

Arlene Gottfried has a fantastic book called Sometimes Overwhelming of vintage portraits and street photographs that’s just hit the shelves, via powerHouse. Arlene’s catalogue of characters depicts a NYC that’s MIA. Her collection of both faces and faded fashion works on that nostalgic, where-have-they-gone level, as well as on the pure photographic that’s-a-tremendous-picture level. From … Continue reading Arlene Gottfried, Sometimes Overwhelming, the Interview
