One of the many things we're consistently overwhelmed by as we return time and again to Joel Meyerowitz's new book Taking My Time is his ability to establish an unspoken, unacknowledged sometimes unknown yet imminent relationship between the subjects caught in his camera lens. And that's something that Joel speaks about in today's video interview - the understanding that the world continues outside the frame, that what the photographer puts in and what the photographer leaves out are in Joel's words "what determines the potential and meaning of the photograph."

"If my pictures work at all, at their best they suggest these tenuous relationships," the photographer says, adding: "I want the ephemeral connections between unrelated things to vibrate." If you're a photographer the video below will really make you look at composition in an entirely different way. Watch it and then take a look at Taking My Time in the store.
