JOEL MEYEROWITZ: Provincetown
The beach town of Provincetown, Massachusetts has long been defined by outsiders. A safe haven for the queer community and a getaway for artists, it is a place defined by openness and tolerance. Throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, Joel Meyerowitz spent his summers there, roaming the seaside with an 8-by-10 camera, making exquisite, sharply observed portraits of families, couples, children, artists, and other denizens of the progressive community. Provincetown collects one hundred portraits, most never before published, bringing viewers into an idyllic world of self-styled individualism.
