Signed on a nameplate sticker provided by the publisher. This new and expanded edition of Joel Meyerowitz's widely acclaimed 1983 photobook features new and unpublished images, and a larger format. For nearly 50 years Meyerowitz has tended his visual garden in the streets, parks and cities that he has visited or lived in. He goes into the streets wide-eyed and passionate, carrying a machine ideally suited to the task of taking it all in. One day, while editing, Meyerowitz stumbled upon a small group of photographs featuring flowers, which he had accumulated without realizing.
He began to see that this innocent premise might serve to bring together a variety of his other photographic interests. Thus the book was born.
With a unique sense of visual humor and an unmatched attention to detail, Meyerowitz invites readers to see the natural beauty in the busy city landscape. Everywhere one expects to find them and many places one doesn't.
This ranges from the image of a woman wearing a hat of flowers and veil with petals, to flower vases set out in the windows of a trailer, to a man in a checkered suit with flower tattoos on his arms, to unusual interiors with flowered textiles. SIGNED Joel Meyerowitz on a plate affixed to the title page.
