Born in 1938 in New York, Joel Meyerowitz is considered, together with William Eggleston and Stephen Shore, one of the most representative exponents of New Color Photography of the 60s and 70s. After an experience as an art director, in the 1960s he began to devote himself to photography inspired above all by Robert Frank. He then began to collaborate with several important authors such as Garry Winogrand, Tony Ray-Jones, Lee Friedlander, Tod Papageorge and Diane Arbus. The small format camera (35 mm) allowed Meyerowitz to cross New York and behave like a real street photographer, recording small random events, minimal and revealing details, faces and urban landscapes. Thanks to collaborations with William Eggleston and Stephen Shore, Meyerowitz then approached the large format until arriving at the important work he carried out after the attacks of September 11, 2001. Meyerowitz was the only one authorized to photograph Ground Zero closely immediately after the attacks: many of these photographs were then collected in the volume Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive. An ever-evolving photographer, lately inspired by the works and events of Paul Cézanne, he creates a series of photographs of the French artist's objects. Meyerowitz's photographs are featured in important public and private collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Art in Boston and The Art Institute of Chicago. Among the many personal exhibitions held since 1966, we mention On the street, Color photographs, 1963-1973 (Chicago Art Institute, 1994-95), and Aftermath: inside the forbidden city (travelling exhibition since 2003). Joel Meyerowitz is represented by the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York.
Lorenzo Braca (born 1977) is an Italian historian and photographer who has published widely on the literature, the mentality, and the imagination of the late Middle Ages. He is currently working for the Catholic University of Milan. As a photographer, his work is oriented towards the urban environment, its evolution, and the overlooked signs of human presence. Braca had his first solo exhibition in 2021.
