About the Artist
Joel Gendelman began photographing at the age of 16 on the Lower East Side of New York when it became the East Village. He was shortly exhibited at a local photography gallery and has been composing pictures since. His images have been part of a myriad of nationally juried competitions. Joel’s work has been showcased in several one-person exhibits.
His first love is portraiture. Joel cherishes the moment when the subject, the scene, and the artist are woven together. He also treasures landscapes where the elements of sky, building, and earth come together to create a unified emotion.
The photographers whom Joel most emulate are Diane Arbus and Lisettee Model for how they captured humanity in the most unlikely places. He also studied the work of Karsh, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Edward Weston, and Cartier Bresson.
Joel Gendelman’s work is available gallery and museum exhibitions and purchase. www.joelgendelmanphotography.com.
