Joel Meyerowitz: Wild Flowers

Text by Joel Meyerowitz, Maggie Barrett.

Joel Meyerowitz: Wild Flowers

An expanded large-format edition of Meyorowitz’s 1983 photo-bouquet of urban flora

This new and expanded edition of Joel Meyerowitz’s widely acclaimed 1983 photobook Wild Flowers features new and unpublished images, and a larger format. For nearly 50 years Meyerowitz has tended his visual garden in the streets, parks and cities that he has visited or lived in. He goes into the streets wide-eyed and passionate, carrying a machine ideally suited to the task of taking it all in.

One day, while editing, Meyerowitz stumbled upon a small group of photographs featuring flowers, which he had accumulated without realizing. He began to see that this innocent premise might serve to bring together a variety of his other photographic interests. Thus Wild Flowers was born. With a unique sense of visual humor and an unmatched attention to detail, Meyorowitz invites readers to see the natural beauty in the busy city landscape.

Born in the Bronx in 1938, Joel Meyerowitz is best known for his extensive street photography practice. He began capturing everyday scenes on the streets of New York in 1962 and was an early adopter of color film for the genre, advocating for its use when many self-serious career photographers resisted its popularization. He has published 35 books.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Musee

Andy Dion

Taking a look through the pages of Joel Meyerowitz’s Wild Flowers, one sees images of happenstance, of hilarity, and of profound sadness. Originally released in 1983, the idea for Wild Flowers came to Meyerowitz when he discovered a notable amount of flowers in his work. The result of the project was an interesting, simultaneous extrapolation of and departure on and from his previous work, acknowledging the flower in our daily life.

Blind

Miss Rosen

The flower thread[s] itself through his images like a medieval tapestry of mille fleur.

Hyperallergic

Esmé Hogeveen

Meyerowitz’s unforced curation shines brightest in moments of humor and attentive observation. [...] In 2021, after a year of increased fear, loss, and trepidation, flowers have continued to bloom and die, gracing public and private spaces, weddings and funerals. Never cloying, the florals in Wild Flowers are a reminder of a world that keeps growing.

Contemporary Lynx Magazine

Anna Dziuba

Presents snapshots in which the landscaoe of the cities the photographer lived in meets urban greenery [...] The series includes street photographs, portraits, still-life images and city scapes.

Harper's Bazaar

Ashley Simpson

Showcases everyday scenes from New Yorkers in their Sunday best in 1964 to a man on a unicycle in San Juan carefully balancing a towering bouquet—all drawn together by a single, unexpectedly nuanced theme: the flower.

"New York City" (1974) is reproduced from Wild Flowers, Damiani's critically-acclaimed, large-format, expanded edition of Joel Meyerowitz's 1983 photobook classic. "Whether it is a tattooed rose, a floral bedspread, a lovingly held bouquet or a single bloom in a desert, these photographs singly and together echo our yearning for ritual and the need to connect with beauty," Maggie Barrett writes. "While each of these images immortalizes the given moment, the subject matter reveals the ephemeral, temporary nature of existence. Like all well-tended gardens, Wild Flowers is a book you can wander through over and over again and each time discover something new." continue to blog
