Intensifying the everyday through a striking and revolutionary use of colour, Joel Meyerowitz’s photography brings to life extraordinary moments from the quotidian. Leading the viewer through streets, cities, and urban landscapes of America and beyond, his lens captures that which would otherwise be overlooked.
Breaking down boundaries between worlds, a new exhibition at Polka Galerie, Paris, positions audiences at the forefront. As the photographer explains: “An outsider’s eye can sometimes intervene to break down those walls and to liberate the images we no longer give a second thought to, bringing new associations.”
The show runs until 21 January. Find out more here.
