During a 40-year career as a commercial photographer, Arthur Meyerson has continuously created personal images that “are less about technique and more about a pure passion for seeing and capturing what I saw,” he says. That work is gathered in a new book, The Color of Light. Says Meyerson: “While the subject matter is diverse, the pictures are held together by the fact that they are made up of the three themes that interest me the most in photography; light, color and moments. Light produces color. Light can be soft or intense… color can provoke or excite. It can also inform. At their best, light and color can come together at a moment in time and create an atmosphere, emotional response and/or a sense of place. And for me, that is the power and joy of the color of light.”

  3. Your work has so much meat on the bone….the eye can just dance around in there. These are the kind of images that you don’t get tired of viewing. Great work and variety! Thanks for sharing!
