"Contained in the archive was a precious document of a lost world and time. Captured between covers is Mr. Meyerowitz's record of the Provincetown of my imaginings." --Guy Trebay, New York Times
"Joel's latest publication bears the hallmarks of his precise photographic style, but takes us away from the vignettes of life in the city he's better known for, into Provincetown... The resulting book, released next week, is full of quiet, tender and engaging portraiture." --Ryan White, i-D "Meyerowitz's picture has become a time capsule of a younger, fallow time, with a sense of hope embedded in the beachy light." --Alina Cohen, Artsy "The end result are these photos, striking both for their allure and for the age they document: pre-internet, in the earliest throes of the AIDS crisis, a time before globalization and other forces would turn Provincetown into something else, when it still held that otherworldly, quirky, utterly unique charm." --Them "If extraterrestrials asked me to convey the nature of human beings, I'd show them Joel Meyerowitz's dazzling array of portraits. I can think of no better testament to the joy, the beauty, the sheer force of our lives here on Earth." --Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours "Meyerowitz captures pride and poignancy." --Bill Shapiro, BLIND
