"Acclaimed for his lyrical, large-format images of Cape Cod, Joel Meyerowitz first achieved recognition for his kinetic street photographs. Wild Flowers is both a rediscovery of this more spontaneous work and a "worthy successor to Cape Light and St. Louis and the Arch, madder and merrier than its predecessors." Here, Meyerowitz looks perceptively at life's rituals and its follies, showing us the irony and the beauty of everyday life. Wryly humorous yet poignant, these visually diverse pictures are unified by their common thematic element - from the floral costumes of a punk masquerade to a unicyclist who deftly balances an outsized spray of paper flowers."
"Most charming is the discovery that Meyerowitz has a gift for visual humor, rare enough in photography. He's after the small smile, and he gets it."
