Baltz was a key protagonist of the New Topographics
This comprehensive book accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Lewis Baltz’s work following his passing in 2014. It explores the artist’s oeuvre as a complex whole of interrelated series, from his first <IPrototypes[/I] and the <ITract Houses[/I] to <IPark City[/I], <ISan Quentin Point[/I] and <ICandlestick Point[/I], through to <INew Sites of Technology[/I] and <IVenezia Marghera[/I]. The book simultaneously locates Baltz’s work in the context of photography and contemporary art since the 1970s, to fully examine his influence and legacy.
Baltz is one of the most prominent representatives of the New Topographics movement, which was seminal to the development of conceptual photography. His photo series document the impact of industrial civilization on the landscape, focusing on places outside the bounds of canonical reception: urban wastelands, abandoned industrial sites, warehouses. Baltz’s strategies reflect a deep knowledge of the history of photography and present the photographer as a teacher of seeing.
