Format: Paperback
This is one in a superb series titled "Photographers at Work" from the Smithsonian. A series, that I fear is becoming forgotten. The idea is simple -- short interviews with a photographer on a focused topic with nicely-reproduced images from their work. The interviews touch on aesthetic approaches, technical choices, and, if the photographer is willing, placing his or her work within the history of photography.

Here we have the elegant, spare Meyerowitz, a photographer who creates texturally rich, wise, urban landscapes using a limited color palette. You get a sense of being an honored visitor of the places he shoots.

For me the balance here is perfect -- about 15 pp of text followed by about 30 pp of images.
