These picture stand as a heartfelt memorial. They mark sites that have become an indelible part of the American landscape. They ask us to stand on that difficult threshold between what has happened and what little remains; between what we know and what cannot be understood. This, too, is the American landscape
Campagna romana : the countryside of ancient Rome by Joel Sternfeld( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From one of America's most acclaimed photographers: stunning images of an extraordinary and endangered landscape. The countryside south and east of Rome around the ruins of the Claudian Aqueduct is an artist's paradise. Its rare light, its evocations of ancient Roman civilization enchant the camera just as they attracted such painters as Claude, Turner, and Corot. Writers, too, have fallen under its spell - from Horace and Pliny the Elder to Goethe and Henry James. "Few other scenes on earth combine in one glance such a myriad of mighty associations," wrote one nineteenth-century chronicler. As for the great aqueduct, its "broken and disjointed arches" suggest "the vertebrae of some mighty monster." The rolling plain of the Campagna was only marginally occupied during the height of the Roman Empire: one lived either within the protective walls of Rome or in the cooler and more defendable hill towns a few miles away. After the fall of Rome, the countryside grew even more desolate. Except for a few castles and towers built in the Middle Ages and an occasional farmhouse built in the nineteenth century, the area remained barely populated for 1,400 years, haunted by its past. Then, in the late 1800s, after Italy became a nation and Rome its capital, the Campagna changed dramatically. Railroads began to weave in and out of the arches of aqueducts; suburbs began to intrude on the plain. Now the Campagna is increasingly threatened by rapid and uncontrolled urban sprawl. Sternfeld's magnificent color photographs capture poignant juxtapositions of past and present: ancient tombs, villas, arches, temples coexisting with apartment houses, malls, and the blight of the modern city. Much of the area that Sternfeld documents has been proposed as a large archaeological park, but unless legislation is enacted immediately, what little remains of the historic Campagna will be lost forever. Campagna Romana, the only modern photographic study of this legendary place, captures its wonders for all time and pleads for its preservation
Walking the High Line by Joel Sternfeld( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book of Sternfeld's largely unseen early colour photographs. In 1969 Sternfeld began working with a 35 mm camera and Kodachrome film, and First Pictures contains works from this time until 1980. Here Sternfeld develops traits that appear in his mature work: irony, a politicised view of America, concern for the social condition. But there are also pictures that bear little relation to his later work: colour arrangements that parallel those of Eggleston, as well as street photography which Sternfeld ceased making in 1976. The photographs in First Pictures were made at a time when colour photography was struggling to assert itself against the authoritative black and white tradition, making this book a revelation both in Sternfeld's oeuvre and in the history of contemporary photography

Sweet earth : experimental utopias in America by Joel Sternfeld( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A common human longing, the utopian community ideal has taken root firmly in America over the past 200 years and continues today. In Sweet Earth: Experimental Utopias in America, Joel Sternfeld looks at 60 historical, ongoing and newly-formed representative American utopias. In this work, Sternfeld continues his practice of chronicling the American landscape, offering here a visual history of the diverse and often ill-understood phenomenon of social experimentation in America. Sweet Earth brings together what might otherwise seem disparate, individualized social phenomena and makes visible the community of communities."--Jacket

Stranger passing by Joel Sternfeld( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a period of fifteen years Joel Sternfeld travelled across America and took portrait photographs that form in Douglas R. Nickel's words an intelligent, unscientific, interpretive sampling of what Americans looked like at the century's end. Unlike historical portraits which represent significant people in staged surroundings, Sternfeld's subjects are uncannily normal: a banker having an evening meal, a teenager collecting shopping carts in a parking lot, a homeless man holding his bedding. Using August Sander's classic photograph of three peasants on their way to a dance as a starting point, Sternfeld employed a conceptual strategy that amounts to a new theory of the portrait, which might be termed The Circumstantial Portrait. What happens when we encounter the other in the mist of a circumstance? What presumptions, if any, are valid? What, if anything, can be known of the other from a photographic portrait?

IDubai by Joel Sternfeld( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Paris and its shopping arcades were to the 19th century, Dubai and its wondrous malls may be to the new millennium. The Baudelarian flâneur is replaced by the phoneur, a wired wanderer who uses the cell phone to text and call and access the Internet, all the while snapping digital images on the fly. If the arcades were representative of early capitalism, then perhaps the postmodern shopping playgrounds of Dubai are exemplars of advanced capitalism. With this in mind, when photographer Joel Sternfeld visited these malls in 2008, he documented them with the consumer fetish object of the moment--the iPhone. In the process, he achieves a very particular unity of form and content; the object that encapsulates the spirit of an era is used to document that era. Yet Sternfeld's iPhone camera also gets past mass media images of the Emirate to find a human component.--From publisher description
