Where I Find Myself est la première grande rétrospective de Joel Meyerowitz, l’un des plus grands photographes américains. Comme le titre l’indique, il est organisé en ordre chronologique inverse et couvre toute la carrière du photographe à ce jour.
Il couvre tous les grands projets de Meyerowitz : son travail inspiré par l’artiste Morandi, son travail sur les arbres, sa couverture exclusive de Ground Zero, ses voyages sur les traces de Robert Frank à travers les États-Unis, ses expériences comparant la couleur et les images en noir et blanc, et bien sûr son travail iconique de photographie de rue.
Le texte de ce livre est écrit par Joel Meyerowitz lui-même.
