Out of the Darkness - Six Months in Andalusia 1966-1967

ISBN: 9788417048433

Author: Joel Meyerowitz    Publisher: La Fabrica

The colour-photography pioneer Joel Meyerowitz travelled across Spain in 1966 and 1967 taking hundreds of pictures that comprise a remarkable document of 1960s Spain. The time he spent in Spain marked a creative turning point in the photographer’s career, and at this time he was taking photographs both in colour and black and white. From 1972 onwards, he would only photograph in colour. The book brings together some 100 images of this initiatory trip, which are divided into four chapters —State, Street, From the car and Flamenco—, and includes texts by Francesco Zanot and Miguel López-Remiro,as well as an interview between Joel Meyerowitz and Nuria Enguita, the director of Bombas Gens (Valencia), where the photographs will be on show from March 2018 until January 2019. Joel Meyerowitz (New York, 1938) is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions worldwide. As an early advocate of colour photography, Meyerowitz was key in changing the attitude toward the use of colour in the medium. His first book, Cape Light, is considered a classic work of colour photography and has sold more than 150,000 copies. He has published 20 other books, including Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks (Aperture) and his retrospective book, Taking My Time, (Phaidon).
