He currently has a major exhibition named “Morandi’s Objects” at via dello Scalo, Bologna.
Meyerowitz realized his dream of photographing the objects Morandi painted in his life. So as to pay a tribute to the Bolognese painter Giorgio Morandi, he will present 20 works all inspired by objects painted by Morandi from from 23 October 2015 to 1 February 2016.
Before JOEL MEYEROWITZ started taking photographs of Morandi’s objects , he did a thorough survey of almost 270 objects in the small room in Casa Morandi where Morandi worked on vases, shells, bottles of all sizes,colored bottles or plain, silk flowers, jugs, boxes, tin cans, funnels, and many more.
Joel Meyerowitz aim was to give life to these objects he captured and reveal the identity of all objects Morandi always valued for. He treated his captured photographers of morandi’s objects as portraits expressing the depth and motive of the objects.
