The Picasso Museum in Picasso’s Andalusian hometown of Málaga celebrates iconic street photographer, Joel Meyerowitz, one of the leading photographers of his generation. In 1966, shortly after meeting notable photographer Robert Frank in 1962, Meyerowitz was inspired to leave his advertising career for photography. That same year, at the age of 28, he ventured on a year-long road trip around Europe, spending six months in Málaga, Spain. He took 8,500 photographs in Andalusia, but captured 25,000 while visiting 10 countries. On view at this striking exhibition: vintage and large-format prints of the photographer’s travels from the 1960s.
