TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 24 February 2008
With text and one photo on each spread 'Sweet Earth' follows in the same format as Sternfeld's previous fascinating book 'On This Site' rather than the straight photobook style of 'American Prospects' or 'Stranger Passing'. The Editorial Review, above, will give you a good idea about the contents.

The photos are a rich selection of the various experimental communities across America and nearly all of the sixty shots are exteriors. They give you an idea of how varied some of these places are, from Dome Village in Los Angeles (domes predictably) Oneida Community Mansion, New York to the eleven homes of Surreal Estates in Sacramento. The text facing each photo tells of the background and current status of each place.

The book is the usual excellent production from Steidl, Germany. Good paper, printing in 175dpi with simple, clean typography and design. I thought it was a pity though that only one photo was devoted to each place. Sternfeld must have taken plenty and it would have given more coherence to the book's purpose to give as full a picture as possible of these intriguing Utopias.
