Landscape in Memoriam.
Photographs by Joel Sternfeld.
Chronicle Books, San Francisco, 1996. 112 pp., 50 color illustrations, 12x10".
With his two earlier titles, American Prospects and Campagna Romana, Joel Sternfeld established himself as one of photography's foremost wits. His images have always ironcially shown the intrusion of man into a world of beauty, persuasively rendered in classical proportions and color. On This Site explores the irony that cannot be seen in any photograph: beautiful scenes where horrible events occured. Sternfeld has revisited the sites of 50 infamous crimes and returned with images of unsettlingly normal places; their histories disturbingly invisible.
