Joel Meyerowitz: Provincetown Print Set
Aperture is pleased to work with the artist to bring to their audience of collectors, three wonderful limited-edition prints, all of which appear in the soon-to-be released monograph. The proceeds from these prints help to support the publication of Joel Meyerowitz: Provincetown, in addition to supporting the artist and helping to underwrite Aperture’s publishing and public programs.
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.
