"Pioneers of Color" Exhibit at Edwynn Houk

Although this exhibition was clearly designed as a showcase for Joel Meyerowitz (whom the gallery represents), with Stephen Shore and William Eggleston in supporting roles, that's not an issue when there are so many great photographs in the room.

All three men used color in the nineteen-sixties and seventies, when art photography was strictly black-and-white. The work doesn't look dated. On the contrary, much of it looks better than ever: crisp, brilliant, effortlessly cool. Their snapshot-style sensibility was Pop, and their pictures of the American social landscape merge celebration with critique as seamlessly as anything by Warhol or Rosenquist.

From The New Yorker.
