    • Joel Meyerowitz


    Joel Meyerowitz’s colour work revolutionised the history of photography. Born in 1938 in New York, he began photographing the city in black and white with a 35mm camera after meeting Robert Frank in 1962. In the mid 1960s, a long trip to Europe marked a turning point in his career and enabled him to affirm his personal style. Only in the 1970s did he begin working exclusively in colour.

    Joel Meyerowitz developed a highly individual style, capturing “the decisive instant” with a 35mm camera and revealing the beauty of reality using longer exposure times with a 20 x 25 Deardorff view camera. This retrospective presents both his early black and white photographs and his colour work, including the famous pictures of the ruins of the World Trade Center in New York following the events of 11 September 2001.

    A book is available to accompany the exhibition, published by Phaidon.

    Exhibition organised in collaboration with Hôtel des Arts de Toulon and Photomed.

    Media partners: Connaissance des Arts, Radio Nova and UGC.
