Joel Meyerowitz - Between the Dog and the Wolf

Mon-Sat: 10-5:30pm

Joel Meyerowitz: Between the Dog and the Wolf. Opening on July 20th consists of thirteen, large-scale photographs from Meyerowitz' archives which bespeak his position as a pioneer of modern, colour photography.

Originally published as a photobook, Between the Dog and the Wolf captures serene swimming pools girdled by expansive seas and endless, twilight horizons in Cape Cod throughout the 70s and 80s. The contrast between pools and the ocean is not only an aesthetic one, but a philosophical contrast too: the title comes from the French phrase entre chien et loup, alluding to oncoming darkness.

Meyerowitz notes, “It seems to me that the French liken the twilight to the notion of the tame and the savage, the known and the unknown, where that special moment of the fading of the light offers us an entrance into the place where our senses might fail us slightly, making us vulnerable to the vagaries of our imagination
