download pdf Joel Sternfeld - American Prospects By Katy Siegel –

Joel Sternfeld - American Prospects if you want to know where the comtemporary obsession with large format color street work came from, this is it newer books, by artists like alec soth and other color documentary artists, are excellent, important books, but it must at least be noted that the true groundbreakers were working a generation ago, putting out these kinds of books before it was the accepted trend and simply put, this work along with shore s uncommon places and eggleston s guide , are still, in my opinion, unsurpassed.on top of that, the size and reproduction quality of this book are mind blowing i can t imagine any photography fan not loving this book, or any serious student not wanting it for a decent price, of course, which this actually is with the discount.

I have known this work since the first edition book came out This is a modern 2003, or later reprint version with a few tweaks and added images.The book and work is good, certainly Sternfeld s best by a good way Some of the pictures are obviously familiar, but my one niggle is that they strive a little too much to be interesting for my taste Rogue Elephant on the road Landslips Fires at the Pumpkin Farm, etc are all very entertaining, but are too intent on finding obvious reasons to make a photograph Who would not pull out their camera and take an images of an escaped Elephant or a Farm fire Obviously we all would, and being obvious is not good artistic practice much great photography has taught us that Other quieter pictures get drowned by these noisy siblings, when they are often better and discretely telling moments.For those here who claim this is a landmark or iconic book, etc, putting Mr Sternfeld up there with William Eggleston or Stephen Shore, it has to be clarified that the original edition book did not come out till 1987 The work is good, don t get me wrong, but silly claims see other reviews here that he was one of the founding fathers of New Color movement are beyond me if the book was not out till the late 1980 s it can t have had much of the national international influence that Eggleston or Shore had, with their much earlier publications Various European photographers had color books out years before too, so it would be hard to argue any paradigm shift occurred through this work s release Get your dates right people, before making silly proclamations about the history of photography What a refreshing twist on the usual coffee table photography book Sternfeld s photographs of the natural and manmade environment are so interesting They almost have an old fashioned hand colored postcard feel to them, but the images are often startlingly futuristic Great contrasts of the ugly and rusting and vacant with beautiful natural landscapes The publishers did a wonderful job of cleanly presenting the photos to speak for themselves and putting all the verbiage up front. JOEL IS A GOOD NAME AND THIS IS A FABOULOS WORK.This man is travelling a lot I want only says that J.Sternfeld is able to meet people and discover particulary little object too that can be fundamental for go inside these pictures,he use colour in a cool way too,soft traditional in colours but in meanings is not really traditional expecially if we related his work in the world of landscape s photography.He use landscape like it was reportage.It is a way for put something else inside.That picture could be sometime strong somentime enchanting but always are intresting me.Put something strange in your picture and maybe that landscape could change his own value.I like a lotciaoooooo
