The Age Of Adolescence: Joseph Sterling Photographs 1959-1964The Age Of Adolescence: Joseph Sterling Photographs 1959-1964

Published by Greybull Press.
Essay by David Travis.

Adolescence is a time of drives: sexual, emotional, and vehicular. That age sparkles with the promise of what's to come, hides its insecurities under the cover of bravado, and trembles with excitement about the here and now. From 1959 to 1964 (arguably the adolescence of America), Joseph Sterling photographed teenagers, mostly in and around Chicago, hanging out after school, at drive-ins, in fast cars. As Sterling himself defined it, "the world of the adolescent is totally interlaced within itself and incapable of freeing itself . . . It whirls, rolls, and engulfs what it is allowed to engulf." During that bridging period between postwar peace and prewar upheaval, Sterling was a student himself at Moholy-Nagy's Institute of Design in Chicago, where he studied photography under Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, and Frederick Sommer with classmates Yasuhiro Ishimoto and Ray Metzker. Looking back now at this body of work in its entirety, a viewer can easily see that America was on the verge of a sea change--Vietnam, drugs, the end of our naŽvet™ as a nation.

Along with an essay by David Travis, Curator of Photography at the Art Institute of Chicago since 1972, this volume collects more than 100 images of a time that's both historically important and emotionally resonant, one in which, as Sterling says, "opportunity is revealed and must be exploited."
