This complete portfolio of "Bay Sky Porch" contains 15 vintage c-prints, published in a limited edition of 75 in 1979. All of the photographs were taken in 1977 in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Since 1976 Meyerowitz has photographed the view of Cape Cod Bay from his home in Provincetown, capturing the light and colors of the landscape at different times of day in a variety of carefully selected compositions. The juxtaposition of the bay, sky, and porch has become a recurring theme in Meyerowitz's work.

After leaving his job as a corporate art director, Joel Meyerowitz (b. 1938, New York) began his photography career in 1962 as a "street photographer," walking around New York with a 35mm camera to capture scenes of everyday life in the tradition of artists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank. He was one of the earliest advocates for color photography in the 1960's, when it was still not widely accepted as a serious art form. By the 1970's he was working exclusively in color, often in large format, and his work was an important influence on the subsequent generation of color photographers. He taught the first course on color photography at The Cooper Union in New York in the early 1970's, and many of today's renowned photographers studied with him. Meyerowitz has published more than 15 photography books, including the classic "Cape Light," as well as "Aftermath: The World Trade Center Archive." He was the only photographer allowed unrestricted access to ground zero after the 9/11 attacks. Meyerowitz is a two time Guggenheim fellow, a recipient of both the NEA and NEH awards, and a recipient of the Deutscher Fotobuchpreis.
