Photographs by Larry Sultan.
kestnergesellschaft, 2010. 120 pp., 80 illustrations, 8¼x11¾".
This book brings together three of Larry Sultan’s best known series: “Pictures from Home”, “The Valley” and “Homeland”,
all mainly made in the San Fernando Valley, California, where the artist grew up. “Pictures from Home“ is a survey
of his parents life over the course of a long period; “The Valley“ deals with the Californian pornographic industry
which operates out of the suburbs of the region; and “Homeland“, his late series of landscapes which appear idyllic at
first sight but which are fractured by the troubling presence of Mexican day-labourers. In all of his photographs Sultan
is dealing with the private, political and social aspects of the “american dream” – a dream he locates somewhere between
utopia and dystopia. This publication accompanies an exhibition at the kestnergesellschaft, Hannover.
