Label Text:
A master of color photography for more than five decades, Joel Meyerowitz catches fleeting sensations in his images. In the late 1970s, he set aside his 35 mm point-and-shoot device in order to explore the descriptive power of a vintage 8 x 10 field view camera. This transformed his style of photography from one of quick decisions and eye-catching formal relationships to a more contemplative practice. His interest in what he called “fields of force” created by light is reflected in images of the seashore, roadside vistas, and social gatherings enveloped in the summer sun.

-Hannah Blunt, Associate Curator, Mount Holyoke College Art Museum (Jan. 2017)
