New Topographics. Photographs of a Man-altered Landscape. Photographs by Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, Nicholas Nixon, John Schott, Stephen Shore, and Henry Wessel, Jr. International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House, Rochester, New York, 1975. Unpaged. Small oblong quarto. 2,500 copies the entire edition. Stiff wrappers. 23 black-and-white and 1 color reproduction.

A groundbreaking and highly influential exhibition curated by William Jenkins, New Topographics organized the work of ten photographers who photographed the landscape in a non-traditional way. While Ansel Adams and his followers photographed dramatic and astounding beauty in the landscape, the New Topographics photographers emphasized the tension between the land's traditional beauty and the results of our presence within it. "Pictures should look like they were easily taken," said Robert Adams around the time of this show. "Otherwise beauty in the world is made to seem elusive and rare, which it is not." Adams' own The New West and Lewis Baltz's New Industrial Parks preceded this important exhibition. However, it was the exhibition itself that conceptualized and made public the work by these photographers as a major movement in photography. Now extremely scarce--even more so in pristine condition--only 2,500 copies of the catalogue were printed.



Near Fine-; typical yellowing to wraps; tiny nick upper edge of rear; slight cracking in two small areas of spine; interior of text block unaffected; previous owner's stamps on title page.
