Synopsis: Over a period of 15 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 midst of a circumstance? What presumptions, if any, are valid? What, if anything, can be known of the other from a photographic portrait?

About the Author: Joel Sternfeld has had numerous group and solo exhibitions worldwide, including at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. He is the recipient of two Guggenheim Fellowships and a Prix de Rome.

Book Description Über 15 Jahre lang bereiste Joel Sternfeld Amerika und fertigte Portraits an, die nach Douglas R. Nickel als »intelligenter, nichtwissenschaftlicher, subjektiver Querschnitt der Amerikaner Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts« gelten können. Anders als bei historischen Portraits, die bedeutende Persönlichkeiten in arrangierter Umgebung zeigen, sind Sternfelds Protagonisten verblüffend »normal«: ein Banker, der zu Abend isst, ein Teenager, der Einkaufswagen auf einem Parkplatz zusammenstellt, ein Obdachloser, der seine Decken hält. Ausgehend von August Sanders klassischer Fotografie der drei Bauern auf dem Weg zum Tanz verwendet Sternfeld eine konzeptuelle Strategie, die zu einer völlig neuen Auffassung des Portraits führt - und als »Das Portrait der Umstände« bezeichnet werden könnte. Was passiert, wenn man dem anderen im Nebel der Umstände begegnet? Welche Annahmen über seine Person könnten zutreffen? Was - wenn überhaupt - vermag man dem Portrait über den Dargestellten entlocken? (Text engl., Steidl) 34 x 29 cm, 132 S., 60 Farbtafeln, Leinen. Bookseller Inventory # 310077
