Seeing Things

A Kid's Guide to Looking at Photographs

By Joel Meyerowitz.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Seeing Things</I>.Aimed at children between the ages of eight and twelve, Seeing Things is a wonderful introduction to photography that asks how photographers transform ordinary things into meaningful moments. In this book, acclaimed and beloved photographer Joel Meyerowitz takes readers on a journey through the power and magic of photography: its abilities to freeze time, tell a story, combine several layers into one frame and record life’s fleeting and beautiful moments. The book features the work of masters such as William Eggleston, Mary Ellen Mark, Helen Levitt and Walker Evans, among many others. Each picture is accompanied by a short commentary, encouraging readers to look closely and use their imagination to understand key ideas in photography such as light, gesture, composition—and, ultimately, how there is wonder all around us when viewed through the lens.
Joel Meyerowitz (born 1938) is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. He is a two-time Guggenheim Fellow, a recipient of both National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities awards and a recipient of the Deutscher Fotobuchpreis. He has published over 15 books and divides his time between New York and Italy.

Seeing Things: A Kid's Guide to Looking at Photographs by Joel Meyerowitz, Edouard Boubat Lella

"I have been in love with this photograph ever since I first saw it," Joel Meyerowitz writes in his wonderful new childrens' guide to looking at photographs. Under the category heading "Looking Into the Future," the 1947 photograph by Édouard Boubat captures a young girl, Lella, traveling through the French countryside in the back of a truck. "We don't know what she is looking at or where she is going. But it doesn't matter, because this picture is about Lella looking forward into the future… Her gaze becomes a symbol, a metaphor for change and the ongoing passage of time. Every second we experience disappears as we live it. Right now is slipping away into the past as you move forward. But a photograph stops time and preserves fleeting beauty, such as Lella's, lifting it into something meaningful beyond the moment, into something timeless." continue to blog

Seeing Things: A Kid's Guide to Looking at Photographs

Seeing Things: A Kid's Guide to Looking at Photographs, Bruce Davidson

"New York City, Subway" (1980)—originally published in Bruce Davidson's seminal photobook, Subway—is here reproduced from Seeing Things: A Kid's Guide to Looking at Photographs, one of the most charming and intelligent children's books we've had on our list. Authored by noted New Color photographer Joel Meyerowitz, the book features a series of spot-on images alongside short texts that are both smart and revealing, written for ages eight through twelve. Triple die-cut front and back covers create the bonus effect of peeling back the layers of the eye. In Meyerowitz' words, "I chose the photographs in this book with the hope that the things you discover in them will encourage you to open your eyes and your mind so that you can see the world in a new way." continue to blog
