Joel Meyerowitz's photographs of Morandi's objects

In 2015 the photographer Joel Meyerowitz sat at the work table in Giorgio Morandi’s Bologna home, where the painter sat for over 40 years making his still lifes. Using only the warm natural light in the room, he photographed Morandi’s objects. In the photographs, each object sits on Morandi’s table, which still bears the marks the painter drew to set the positions of his subjects. In the background is the same paper that Morandi left on the wall, now brittle and yellow with age. A book of the photographs was published Damiani this year.
