Joel MeyerowitzOut of the Ordinary 1970-1980

The exhibition Out of the Ordinary 1970-1980 by the award-winning American photographer Joel Meyerowitz offers a selection of photographs made between 1970 and 1980, which Meyerowitz saw as a time of radical and decisive change.
The 117 vintage and modern prints presented at the Nederlands Fotomuseum survey that vital decade in which Meyerowitz challenged the medium and engaged in aesthetic exploration.

Meyerowitz: 'During this period I changed from the quick, intuitive 35mm shooting of the urban scene and its complex spaces to the more meditative, spacious and luminous view camera work. In fact, my behavior and my sense of time underwent a transformation that deeply influenced my work from that time on.'

Out of the Ordinary 1970-1980 has been organized in close collaboration with the artist by the Jeu the paume in Paris where the exhibition originally premiered in October of 2006.

Joel Meyerowitz is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world.
