New Topographics Photography

New Topographics Photography

Held at the International Museum of Photography in Rochester, New York, in January 1975, The New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape was one of those rare exhibitions that effect a permanent change in the development of an art form. The show brought together ten contemporary photographers who collectively defined the emergence of a new approach to landscape: Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, Nicholas Nixon, John Schott, Stephen Shore and Henry Wessel, Jr. In different ways, these artists engaged with their medium and its history, while simultaneously absorbing such issues as environmentalism, capitalism and national identity.

"The majority of the work that I do involves very close concentration on framing. The effort is to find that perfectly balanced frame where everything fits. Itís not exactly the same as life. Itís life, seen better."
