Joel Meyerowitz

I started looking more at color photography a lot lately, i'm preparing myself for next semester! I'm really excited, and since i've dont street photography in black and white I wanted to see how it looks like in color. Joel Meyerowitz (along with other photographers) was one of the first photographers to use color effectively in the 70's. It improved his street work, and there's such liveiness in his photos and great energy. In this photo, I like the composition, the man the smoking a cigarette stands out to me. The color yellow seems to stand out to me for some weird reason, I associate new york with yellow, since there's so many taxis. I'll be checking out more from this artist.
