Nomadic Darkness

Two exhibitions of photographs by Joel Meyerowitz will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from 7 September. Between the Dog and the Wolf presents images from the 1970s and 1980s made in the mysterious moments around dusk. Elsewhere, Morandi, Cézanne and Me surveys Meyerowitz’s recent still lifes of objects from Paul Cézanne’s studio in Aix-en-Provence and Giorgio Morandi’s in Bologna.

In speaking about Between the Dog and the Wolf, which is a translation of a common French expression “Entre chien et loup,” referring to oncoming twilight, Meyerowitz notes, “It seemed to me that the French liken the twilight to the notion of the tame and the savage, the known and the unknown, where that special moment of the fading of the light offers us an entrance into the place where our senses might fail us slightly, making us vulnerable to the vagaries of our imagination.”
