Joel Meyerowitz was born in New York on March 6, 1938. He began his photography journey in 1962 and was an early advocate of the use of color during a time when there was significant resistance to the idea of color photography as serious art.
In 1962, inspired by seeing Robert Frank at work, Meyerowitz quit his job as an art director at an advertising agency and took to the streets of New York City with a 35 mm camera and black-and-white film. His work is in the collections of the International Center of Photography, Museum of Modern Art, and New York Public Library, all in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
