Joel Meyerowitz. Taking My Time

Limited and Numbered Edition with Signed Print (1500 copies)

Joel Meyerowitz

Phaidon, London, 2012


Taking My Time is the retrospective monograph covering the life and career of Joel Meyerowitz and provides you with an unprecedented insight into the mind and work of this iconic American photographer.

This two-volume limited edition is presented in a slipcase and includes a signed print (Paris, France, 1967), a DVD of Meyerowitz’s award-winning film, Pop, a unique ‘graphic novel’ insert that tells the story of Pop and a second insert for Meyerowitz’s lesson in colour versus black and white photography.

Showing the growth and development of Meyerowitz and his photography from the 1960s to the present day, Taking My Time explores the pivotal points of Meyerowitz’s career and his experiments in both colour and black and white photography and explorations of human intimacy, architecture, light and space. Including text that Meyerowitz, one of photography’s most articulate practitioners, has contributed, Taking My Time is a unique body of work and an unbeatable account of a significant period of evolution in photography.

Taking My Time also covers his most recent work in Japan, Tuscany and the Legacy series in the parks of New York City, as well as the never-before-published series ‘The Elements’. In 1998, Meyerowitz produced and directed his first film, Pop, an intimate diary of a three-week road trip he made with his son, Sasha, and his father, Hy, who suffered from Alzheimers. It is both an open-eyed look at ageing and a meditation on the significance of memory and is featured in the book both as a DVD of the original film, and in a specially created ‘graphic novel’ insert in Volume II. Another special insert, in Volume I, sets out paired images in both colour and black and white to provide unique lessons in the two mediums of photography.
