About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of photographs by the well-known photographer presents forty color photographs of the sea's horizon that pay homage to the place where the sea meets the sky and illustrate what is most exquisite about Meyerowitz's work.

From Booklist:

In Cape Light (1979), Meyerowitz made his reputation as a landscape photographer specializing in the ephemeral natural light and color associated with artistic luminism. Here he returns to the cape but has pared down his subject matter to just one long stretch of the sea meeting the sky. With his 8-by-10-inch view camera, he shot 46 different views of this vista, which are here reproduced as oversize colorplates. Misty gray morning, clear blue noonday, vivid sunset, gray-blue blanket of clouds, tide in, tide out--each image has its own form and color even though there is little but the horizon in view. Bay/Sky is a natural and more radical extension of Meyerowitz's landscape vision, and it contains some exquisite sights sure to delight both serious photography buffs and lovers of sunsets. Still, collections lacking Cape Light should add it before getting Bay/Sky, which is really a long coda to the earlier work. (A word of warning: Norman Mailer's silly introduction taints Meyerowitz's ethereal viewpoint with sexism, likening it to "a great beauty who is ready to reveal her nude secrets to but one photographer, her own private court photographer.")
