Vivian Maier: The Color Work is the first definitive monograph of color photographs by American photographer Vivian Maier. With a preface by master of color photography Joel Meyerowitz and text by photography authority Colin Westerbeck, the book features approximately 150 full color images, almost all of which have never been published. The Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York represents the work of Vivian Maier and will host an exhibition upon the books publication as well as coordinate exhibits on a global level.
Joel Meyerowitz is a street photographer in the tradition of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, although he works exclusively in color. As an early advocate he became instrumental in changing the attitude toward color photography from one of resistance to nearly universal acceptance. His first book Cape Light is considered a classic work of color photography and has sold more than 100,000 copies. He has published twenty-two other books including Bystander: The History of Street Photography, and a two-volume retrospective, Taking My Time. He is a Guggenheim fellow and a recipient of both the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities awards. His work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and many others worldwide. He lives in Italy. Colin Westerbeck is the author of numerous books on photography, including Chuck Close: Photographer; A Democracy of Imagery; and with Joel Meyerowitz, Bystander, A History of Street Photography. The former curator of photography at the Art Institute of Chicago and former director of the California Museum of Photography at the University of California, Riverside, he has written a weekly column on photography for the Los Angeles Times and is a frequent contributor to Art in America. He has also taught photographic history at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of Southern California. He lives in Los Angeles. Howard Greenberg is one of the world's foremost photography dealers. He is an authority on nineteenth- and twentieth-century photography, and has been an acknowledged leader of establishing its value in the fine art market. His gallery, The Howard Greenberg Gallery, is in New York City. He lives in New York.
