Joel Meyerowtiz Interview 2020

I like Meyerowitz’s street work, especially that of the 1960s and 1970s. I find it to be his most interesting. Though I usually have a hard time listening to him speak, I find his words a bit “over the top”, this interview is worthwhile to listen to.

“…Suddenly you’re alive.”

“Photography is a response that has to do with the momentary recognition of things. Suddenly you’re alive. A minute later there was nothing there. I just watched it evaporate. You look one moment and there’s everything, next moment it’s gone.” – Joel Meyerowitz
