Joel Sternfeld
American Prospects
HC, 38,5 x 30,5 cm., o.pp.
D.A.P. / Steidl 2004

American Prospects is an exploration of the landscape as simultaneously idyllic and dystopian, reflecting on the changing states of American society. Over eight years, Sternfeld crossed the American continent in a camper van taking images of what he saw, which included the most familiar and the unexpected. The impact of this body of work continues to resonate through contemporary artistic, filmmaking and photographic practice.
