Joel Meyerowitz - Smithtown, Long Island, 1968 - 2021
“The photograph of the cheerleaders at the Milk bar was made in Smithtown, Long Island, and was a ‘pure chance’ image. I was driving on the back road where the Milk Stand was when I saw them on the porch of the and immediately pulled over, jumped out, and made a few exposures from across the road. In just a few moments they picked up their shakes and sodas, etc., and went their separate ways. Like so many moments in photography; things are always in the process of disappearing, and only the camera can hold on to these brief and surprising visions.” - Joel Meyerowitz
