Publisher's Description

Lewis Baltz not only revived American landscape photography, but he also revolutionised the photographic pictorial language of the 1970s.

Pictures of industrial landscapes, dreary suburban neighbourhoods and wastelands depict radically new motifs, which for the first time were publically presented in the renowned exhibition New Topographics in 1975.

This catalogue was made in close collaboration with Lewis Baltz and approaches his work through various angles.

The texts highlight how Baltz’s photographies relate to the art of the 1970s, how he applies filmic strategies and why he does not call himself a photographer. In doing so, relevant new and underrepresented aspects of this conceptually driven artists are shown.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition at kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (14 September – 4 November 2012), and at Albertina, Vienna (1 March – 2 June 2013).

English and German text.
