Joel Meyerowitz’ Cape Light is a reissue of a book first printed in 1978. The publishing of Cape Light decades ago was an inspiration, a revelation of refined color and simplicity at a time when black and white was considered the standard for serious photography.

Synopsis

Cape Light, Joel Meyerowitz's series of serene and contemplative color photographs taken on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, quickly became one of the most influential and popular photobooks in the latter part of the 20th century after its publication in 1978, breaking new ground both for color photography and for the medium's acceptance in the art world. Now, more than 35 years later, Joel Meyerowitz: Cape Light is back. This edition features all the now-iconic images, newly remastered and luxuriously printed in a larger format. In Cape Light, everyday scenes—an approaching storm, a local grocery store at dusk, the view through a bedroom window—are transformed by the stunning natural light of Cape Cod and the luminous vision of the photographer. Though Meyerowitz had begun shooting in color on the streets of New York a decade earlier, it was this collection of photographs that brought his sensitive color photography to wider notice. Meyerowitz is a contemporary master of color photography, and this powerful, captivating photobook is a classic of the genre.
