Writing in Roth, The Book of 101 Books, Vince Aletti referred to this book, along with Robert Adams' The New West, "the most cogent, concise, and rigorous New Topographics documents produced in America."
While they explore the cold, anonymous surfaces of the man-made environment, as Aletti points out, Baltz's images "can't help but establish [their] link to minimalist painting and sculpture, particularly Donald Judd's boxes and Carl Andre's concrete blocks."
Also included in 802 Photo Books. A selection from the M+M. Auer collection.
Fine in Near Fine+/Fine- jacket with moderately age-darkened jacket.
