Joel Meyerowitz: Where I Find Myself – A Lifetime Retrospective

Where I Find Myself is the first major single book retrospective of one of America’s leading photographers. It is organized in inverse chronological order and spans the photographer’s whole career to date: from Joel Meyerowitz’s most recent picture all the way back to the first photograph he ever took. The book covers all of Joel Meyerowitz’s great projects: his work inspired by the artist Morandi, his work on trees, his exclusive coverage of Ground Zero, his trips in the footsteps of Robert Frank across the US, his experiments comparing color and black and white pictures, and of course his iconic street photography work. Joel Meyerovitz is incredibly eloquent and candid about how photography works or doesn’t, and this should be an inspiration to anyone interested in photography.

Beg, Steal and Borrow: Artists Against Originality

‘Art is theft,’ Picasso once proclaimed, and much of the best and most ‘original’ new art involves an act or two of unequivocal, overt theft.  Paradoxically, the law relating to artistic borrowing has grown more restrictive. ‘The plagiarism and copyright trials of the twenty-first century are what the obscenity trials were to the twentieth century’, Kenneth Goldsmith, has observed. ‘These are really the issues of our time.’ Written by Elephant editor Robert Shore, Beg, Steal and Borrow offers a comprehensive and provocative survey of a complex subject that is destined to grow in relevance and importance. It traces an artistic lineage of appropriation from Michelangelo to Jeff Koons, and examines the history of its legality from the sixteenth century to now.
