Arthur Meyerson (born February 22, 1949) is an American photographer who specializes in advertising, editorial, and fine art photography.[1]

Life and work[edit]

He graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1971 with a degree in journalism.

Since 1974 he has embarked on photographic assignments and projects across the world while working for such companies as Coca-Cola, Apple, Travel + Leisure, and United Airlines.[2] He has produced photographic series on such places as Antarctica, China, Cuba, Iceland, Portugal, Turkey, and Japan.[3] His books The Color of Light (2012) and The Journey (2017) feature selections of images from across his career.[4]

Meyerson won a gold medal from the New York Art Directors Club in 1985 and the Stephen Kelly Award in 1990 for his images for a Nike advertising campaign; Adweek named him "Southwest Photographer of the Year" three times—in 1983, 1988, and 1990.[5] In 1999 Nikon added him to its list of "Legends Behind the Lens."[6]

Meyerson previously served on the advisory council for the Santa Fe Center for Photography and on the board of advisors for the Houston Center for Photography; he has served on the board of advisors for Santa Fe Photographic Workshops since 1997.[7]
