Join us virtually for a conversation with legendary New York photographer Joel Meyerowitz and ICP’s Managing Director of Programs David Campany for a deeper look at Meyerowitz’s new Masters of Photography publication, How I Make Photographs

In Joel Meyerowitz: How I Make Photographs the legendary photographer shares his passion and infectious enthusiasm for creating incredible photographs. In 20 bite-size lessons Meyerowitz guides the reader through his photographic technique, exploring topics as diverse as how to uncover beauty in the ordinary, how to be at one with your camera, and how to edit your photographs. 

Meyerowitz started making spontaneous color photographs on the streets of New York in 1962 with friends such as Tony Ray-Jones and Garry Winogrand. He has since become known as one of the most important street photographers of his generation. Instrumental in changing attitudes towards color photography in the 1970s, he is known as a pioneer, an important innovator, and a highly influential teacher.
