Joel Sternfeld: American Prospects

Text by Kerry Brougher, Andy Grundberg, Anne W. Tucker.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Joel Sternfeld: American Prospects.'

The definitive edition of Joel Sternfeld’s seminal American Prospects, featuring new photographs, and a revised format and cover

First published in 1987 to critical acclaim, the seminal American Prospects has been likened to Walker Evans’ American Photographs and Robert Frank’s The Americans in both its ability to visually summarize the zeitgeist of a decade and to influence the course of photography following its publication.

This definitive edition of American Prospects contains 12 new pictures, most of which have neither been published nor exhibited. Freed from the size constraints of previous editions, Sternfeld includes portraits and portraits in the landscape that elucidate the human condition in America. The result is a more complex and rounded view of American society that strongly anticipates Sternfeld’s Stranger Passing series (1985–2000) and links the two bodies of work.

A major figure in the photography world, Joel Sternfeld was born in New York City in 1944. He has received numerous awards, including two Guggenheim fellowships, a Prix de Rome and the Citibank Photography Award. Sternfeld’s books published by Steidl include American Prospects (2003), Sweet Earth (2006), Oxbow Archive (2008), First Pictures (2012) and Landscape as Longing (2016) with Frank Gohlke.

A new, expanded edition of Joel Sternfeld's seminal 'American Prospects'

A new, expanded edition of Joel Sternfeld's seminal 'American Prospects'

Featured image, captioned "South Texas, January 1983," is reproduced from Steidl's new and expanded edition of Joel Sternfeld's influential 1987 photography book, American Prospects—now featuring a dozen new and mostly unpublished images. "In the future, no doubt, these images will seem suffused with nostalgia, much as we now see Walker Evans's photographs of the 1930s," Andy Grundberg wrote in the first edition. "They will seem less ironic and more totemic, and their sometimes acid social commentary will lose much of its bite. But for now they speak of a time when progress lost its sense of inevitability, when the land lost its last pretense to innocence, when the spirit of individualism flickered for want of fresh air. They also speak of nature's restorative powers, of human goodness, of men and women seeking to accommodate their primal needs to the imperative of technological society. It is tricky business, balancing these messages, and it does not make for ideological simplicity or political instrumentality. However, in these photographs Sternfeld manages to eke a measure of harmony out of an assortment of follies, which makes American Prospects a metonym for the state of our times." continue to blog
