Joel Meyerowitz (1938, New York) is an American street, portrait and landscape photographer. Meyerowitz began photographing in colour in 1962; he quit his job as an art director at an advertising agency and took to the streets of New York City with a 35 mm camera and colour film and was an early advocate of the use of colour during a time when there was significant resistance to the idea of colour photography as serious art.

In the early 1970s he taught photography at the Cooper Union in New York City. His work is in the collections of the International Center of Photography, Museum of Modern Art, and New York Public Library, all in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
