When renowned street, portrait and landscape photographer Joel Myerowitz began exploring color photography in the early 1960s, many in the photography world did not consider the innovation to be a serious art form. Meyerowitz, now 80, was a leading voice opposing that view. His photos appear in the collections of the International Center of Photography, Museum of Modern Art and New York Public Library, among other prestigious venues. In addition, he is author of 16 photography books. In early 2017, Meyerowitz was inducted into the Leica Hall of Fame.
