CORY REYNOLDS | DATE 6/14/2023
Wednesday, June 14, from 6:30–7:30 PM, LIVE from NYPL presents photographer Joel Meyerowitz in conversation with photographer and historian Lorenzo Braca on new release The Pleasure of Seeing: Conversations with Joel Meyerowitz on Sixty Years in the Life of Photography, published by Damiani Books. This in-person event is sold out, but can be live-streamed by registering here or joining the NYPL's YouTube channel.
Joel Meyerowitz began capturing life on the streets of New York in 1962, and since then his camera has taken him across America, Europe and beyond. In his new book Meyerowitz goes behind the scenes of his storied life and career with historian and photographer Lorenzo Braca. The Pleasure of Seeing hops from stories behind many of Meyerowitz’s famous photographs to the value of the visual image down to technical details about lenses, printing, and film.
Meyerowitz and Braca discuss The Pleasure of Seeing and Meyerowitz’s legendary career, and share some of the 100+ images from the book, everything from iconic photographs to previously unpublished material.
This event is presented as the annual conversation on photography generously underwritten by Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos and Adam Bartos.
