On November 5th, Polka Gallery in Paris will an exhibition entitled Taking My Time, a two-parts retrospective dedicated to the great photographer Joel Meyerowitz.

Autobiographical and contemplative, the exhibition digs into the memory of a spectator and comedian artist, which practice has spanned over many chapters and processes of the recent history of photography. From snapshots and tableaux to street photography and landscapes through portraits, “Taking My Time” tells the story of Joel Meyerowitz’s journey. On view until December 21st, the first part focuses on his early work from the beginning of the 60’s to the mid-70’s. A series of founding images -in colors and black and white- that prefigures his later work by revealing “Meyerowitz before Meyerowitz”.
