Joel Meyerowitz: Morandi's Objects

Giorgio Morandi's studio and objects captured by color master Joel Meyerowitz

In Spring 2015, the photographer Joel Meyerowitz sat at the work table in Giorgio Morandiís Bologna home, in the exact spot where the painter had sat for over 40 years making his quiet, sublime still lifes. Here Meyerowitz looked at, touched, studied and connected with the more than 250 objects that Morandi painted. Using only the warm natural light in the room, he photographed Morandiís objects: vases, shells, pigment-filled bottles, silk flowers, tins, funnels, watering cans. In the photographs, each object sits on Morandiís table, which still bears the marks the painter drew to set the positions of his subjects. In the background is the same paper that Morandi left on the wall, now brittle and yellow with age. Meyerowitzís portraits of these dusty, aged objects are not only works of art themselves, but they offer insight into the humble subjects that Morandi transformed into his subtle and luminous paintings.
Joel Meyerowitz (born 1938) is a street photographer and portrait and landscape photographer. The New York native began photographing in color in 1962 and was an early advocate of the use of color at a time when there was significant resistance to the idea of color photography as serious art. Many of his photographs are icons of modern photography, and he is considered one of the most influential modern photographers and representatives of the New Color Photography of the 1960s and í70s. His work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions around the world and is in the collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art, New York and many other museums worldwide.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Financial Times

Yasmin Omar

The American photographer pays homage to the still-life painter Giorgio Morandi

Design Observer

Rick Poyner

Like Morandiís paintings, these pictures disclose the sublime dimension inherent in ordinary things, only they do it by intrinsically photographic meansówith repetition, seriality, and optical precision.

Another Magazine

Maisie Skidmore

Meyerowitz allowed Morandiís discerning eye to sing out softly through the dimming rosy light and the mottled texture of the wallpaper which formed his backdrop.... The resulting photographs, which are compiled in an exquisite new book entitled Morandiís Objects and published by Damiani, feel distinctly collaborative in their effort; Morandiís curatorial ideas dictate the composition of Meyerowitzís photographs, while the shrewd focus of the camera lens picks out details in the surfaces that the original artistís own eye neglected.

Photograph Magazine

Vince Aletti

This isn't a noisy celebration, it's a quiet homage.

Joel Meyerowitz: Morandi's Objects

Joel Meyerowitz: Morandi's Objects, Tall Green Bottle"I fell in love with Giorgio Morandi ten years before I fell in love with Joel Meyerowitz," Maggie Barrett writes in Morandi's Objects, Damiani's gorgeous new collection of photographs by her husband of the Italian painter's objects and studio. "Of course, when I was first introduced to Morandi he was already dead, whereas Meyerowitz was, and is, very much alive. But I like to think that there was a similar quality in these two men that attracted me to them; a quality of stillness imbued with the latent energy of time. So that within the frame, be it painting or photograph, what first appears to be simplistic and familiar, upon longer reflection reveals the complexity not only of the object but also of the subject. Whether it is a collection of vases and bottles in a Morandi painting or an everyday street scene in a Meyerowitz photograph, the images convey a mystery deeper than their surface."

Joel Meyerowitz: Morandi's Objects

Joel Meyerowitz: Morandi's Objects, Flowers in Vase"Flowers in Vase" is reproduced from Morandi's Objects, Damiani's beautiful, clothbound collection of Joel Meyerowitz's photographs of the objects and interiors of the late Italian painter's Bologna studio. (Also available in a signed and numbered limited edition.) "I sat at Giorgio Morandiís table in exactly the same place that he sat for more than 40 years," Meyerowitz writes. "On his table the same slant of light glowed for me as had for him. I watched it slowly bloom across his now empty, but tracery filled work surface for two days in the spring of 2015. One by one, more than 260 objects that he had collected came into my hands. Dust covered and ordinary, they presented themselves as part of the mystery that Morandi left behind for us to try and understand." continue to blog
