“This is a page from Joel Meyerowitz’s book ‘A Summer’s Day,’ one of my favorite photography books. I picked it up at a Brooklyn Heights bookshop in 2002, and I look to it constantly. I love how Meyerowitz is able to tell the story of a summer’s day in Cape Cod from sunrise to sundown without it ever feeling like a cliché. It’s taught me a lot about how to convey a sense of place and environment in photographs. It’s not a touristy view of Cape Cod, and it has a certain heaviness and darkness to it, too.”
