Joel Meyerowitz: Hacia la luz / Out of the Darkness
Six Months in Andalusia (1966-1967)
La Fabrica, 2018
In 1966, Joel Meyerowitz took an initiatory journey around Europe. Upon his return to New York, he submitted his project to the Head of Photography at MoMA, leading to his monographic exhibition My European Trip. Meyerowitz toured around Spain in 1966 an 1967 and took hundreds of pictures that comprise an exceptional document of 1960’s Spain. He admits that this time in Spain was precisely what marked his creative turning point as a photographer – indeed this is the one period when he takes both colour and black and white photographs before fully turning to colour photography.
