Re-edition of Lewis Baltz’s classic volume originally published in 1974.
More than 30 years later, the industrial and man-made images of the American landscape retain a fascination and edge that is absolutely current.

Scrolling through these photographs, observing the shapes and rigid right angles of walls, doors, streets and windows, abstract paintings come to mind and I can well understand why the publication of this volume encouraged the significant 1975 exhibition ‘New Topographics’. The ten or so artists (including Baltz) represented in this exhibition then went on to exhibit and publish images of the man-made landscape and founded a genre that is now well defined.
