Frank Gohlke & Joel Sternfeld: Landscape as Longing

Text by Joel Sternfeld, Suketu Mehta.

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Frank Gohlke & Joel Sternfeld: Landscape of Longing</i>.In 2003, Frank Gohlke (born 1942) and Joel Sternfeld (born 1944) were commissioned to photograph one of the densest concentrations of ethnic diversity in the world--the borough of Queens in New York City. After more than a year of photographing everything from corner bodegas to the borough’s boundaries, Gohlke and Sternfeld had not only captured the complicated dynamic that sustains Queens and its myriad communities, they had also evolved a theory of landscape photography, in which landscape is a visible manifestation of the invisible emotions of its inhabitants.
Gohlke’s Queens consists of streets, houses, fences, gardens, parklands, shorelines and waste spaces, the territory where human arrangement contends endlessly with the forces that undo it: unruly vegetation, weather, rot and decay.
Sternfeld focuses on the borough’s shops, restaurants, mosques and temples. With an essay by acclaimed writer Suketu Mehta, this book becomes a powerful instrument for understanding a landscape that seems to defy interpretation.

The drop-deadpan landscape photographs of Gohlke and Sternfeld

The drop-deadpan landscape photographs of Gohlke and Sternfeld

As readers of the New Yorker now know, Gerhard Steidl makes seriously spectacular photography books. To our delight, we just received copies of Steidl's newest, Landscape as Longing. A drop-deadpan collection of Queens, New York, landscape photographs by American legends Frank Gohlke and Joel Sternfeld, this volume does not romanticize. The poetry is in the barbed-wire parking lots, the elevated subway platforms, fenced-in driveways, wholesale/retail corner shops and the vinyl siding. Featured image, titled “Wedding palace – Myrtle Ave. and Stephen St. Ridgewood, Queens,” is by Gohlke, 2004. continue to blog

Quietly inspiring photographs of Queens, New York, by two American masters

Quietly inspiring photographs of Queens, New York, by two American masters

A West Indian bakery, a Chinese funeral parlor, an Italian ice stand, a Hindu temple, a Halal Thai restaurant and a Spanish-American podiatry practice are just a few of the eclectic small places of business that come up in Frank Gohlke & Joel Sternfeld: Landscape as Longing, Steidl’s quietly inspiring new joint-monograph collecting the artists’ photographs of Queens, New York. Pink and white balloons peek from behind the woven slats of a dilapidated chain-link fence in one Sternfeld photo of an East Elmhurst Quinceańera celebration; a primitive boardwalk leads into the marsh at a Douglaston environmental center in another photo by Gohlke. A wonderful story by Suketu Mehta is packaged in an attached envelope at the back of the book in a separate, small pamphlet. continue to blog
