Pioneers of Color: Stephen Shore, Joel Meyerowitz, and William Eggleston at Edwynn Houk Gallery

This was a phenomenal photography show, and a must-see for anybody who is a photographer, who appreciates photography, or who just likes good and important art. It was inspiring to see the work of these three masters together. The prints were beautifully presented and in a variety of sizes---reflecting the thoughts and attitudes toward color photography at the time they were made, in the '70's---and a fascinating reflection of America during this time. The opening was exciting, as all three of the artists were there (plus Mitch Epstein!), and despite the blizzard outside, was packed with people thrilled to see this work.
