Product description

Review

“We have long needed a much larger framework for understanding the profound shift in thinking about the nature and culture of landscapes that occurred with the New Topographics. We finally have it with "Reframing the New Topographics" in which cultural mapping, systems theory, eco-criticism, film theory, the digital landscape, and more are all brought to bear. The resulting collection of essays not only illustrates the historical underpinnings of landscape photography during the latter-half of the twentieth century, but also where it may go in the twenty-first."—William Fox, co-author of "Photography and Flight"
 
--William Fox (01/01/2010)

"The appearance of New Topographics in 1975 forever changed our ideas about landscape photography. "Reframing the New Topographics" will change our ideas about New Topographics. We see the pictures anew and learn that their difficult and often deadpan confrontation of suburban sprawl and middle-class plenty belonged to a wider set of struggles that are still very much with us today. This is a heady ride back to the future."--Anthony W./i> series
