Joel Meyerowitz : Provincetown Print Set

"[For those of us] who find our way here—travelers, artists, writers, playwrights, actors, poets, straight, gay, lesbian, gender-nonconforming, black, white, foreign, anyone who wants to move from the urban pressures to the spacious and spiritual beauty of the Outer Cape—Provincetown is where your identity and sense of ‘home’ come to ground.”
—Joel Meyerowitz

The beach town of Provincetown, Massachusetts, has long been defined by outsiders—a haven for the queer community and a getaway for artists, a place of openness and tolerance. Throughout the 1970s and the early ’80s, Joel Meyerowitz spent his summers there, roaming the seaside with an 8-by-10 camera, making exquisite, sharply observed portraits of denizens of the progressive community—families, couples, children, artists, and others. In Meyerowitz’s photographs, a cast of characters appears and reappears from season to season against the picturesque backdrop of sea, sand, and sun.

Joel Meyerowitz: Provincetown collects these portraits, never before published, bringing viewers into an idyllic world of self-styled individualism. This body of work, by a master of the medium, is a visual time capsule of a storied LGBTQ community.
