    Joel Meyerowitz pointers wanted

    I have a copy of Joel Meyerowitz's "Aftermath", which I think is great. The subject matter for those who are unfamiliar with it, is 9/11 Ground Zero and the clean up operation.

    I have seen virtually no other Joel Meyerwitz work, and wondered if anyone could point me in the direction of some of his bodies of work that are of merit?

    Thanks.

    Cape Cod Light is one of my all-time favorites. It has been a continuous inspiration to me.

    Bay/Sky is boring.

    St. Louis Arch really doesn't ring bells one way or the other.

    Phaidon published a Joel Meyerowitz book that spans his career, sort of a "greatest hits" type of book, in a series alongside many other photographers. These were published in small paperback and a smallish hardcover. It's an excellent book.

    He's probably best known for his book Cape Light, and he also has some work from Tuscany that is very beautiful.

    As a guy who shoots portraits, I also liked Meyerowitz's book "Redheads".

    Cape Light is certainly what Meyerowitz is famous for, but you should also seek out A Summer's Day, Bay, Sky, and his book on Tuscany.

    I bought St Louis and the Arch for a friend many years ago (and wanted to keep it for myself). He's done a great number of books - 'Redheads', 'Cape Light'. You should be able to find him on-line and in your library.
