St. Louis, Missouri, 1978

“How could I pass this up? It’s many things all at once: a great collection of signage and graphics probably from before the Great Depression; the visual joke of BRAINS 25¢ and the idea of driving in to get some, which still pleases me; and then there is the aching, bittersweet loneliness of finding myself at the edges of a failing Middle American city and discovering this kind of original beauty.” 

—Joel Meyerowitz


An early advocate of color photography, Joel Meyerowitz has impacted and influenced generations of artists. For fifty-eight years, the master photographer has documented the USs ever-changing social landscape. Now, Aperture and Meyerowitz launch a special ten-day print sale, featuring three 5-by-7-inch prints signed by the artist. 


This also marks the launch of a new undertaking by Meyerowitz and his studio to scan his archive of over 140,000 previously unseen Kodachrome slides. Now, at the age of eighty-twoMeyerowitz feels the necessity of bringing his nearly six decades of work into a searchable and comprehensive archive and study center.  


In the early years of the ’60s and 70s, photography wasnt taken as seriously as it is now, nor were there many places showing photographs,” Meyerowitz explains. “So, there were lots of images that went into the files after a first look and remained there, waiting to see daylight somedayThat time is here, and at my age, I want to act on scanning all this work while I can still feel the excitement.  


Proceeds from the print sale not only help support Aperture and fund Meyerowitz’s archiving project, but a portion will also be donated to the Equal Justice Initiativewhich is doing critical work to challenge racial and economic injustice
