Synopsis: The New York curator Marvin Heiferman characterized Lewis Baltz's landscape photography as "a topography of the emptiness of random, damaged, remote places." The images in his 1989 series Candlestick Point show fallow Californian land, where piles of rubble and waste accumulate in the middle of the prairie. Traces of technical land development--drainage channels and water dams--are visible, becoming a typically American theme: the development of a territory in the almost infinite prairie. Baltz's photographic record of the development at Candlestick Point combines sociological and analytical rigor and is strongly oriented towards the tradition of Land art, and retrospectively pays tribute to its crucial influence on conceptual art since the 1970s. Candlestick Point was first published in 1989 and has been unavailable for decades (except as an expensive collectible on the secondary photobook market). Lewis Baltz's works have been the subject of over 50 one-person exhibitions. Seventeen monographs have been published on his work. He came to prominence as a part of the 'New Topography' movement of the 1970s. Baltz studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and received a Master of Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate School in 1971. He is currently based in Paris and Venice.

Book Description Der New Yorker Kurator Marvin Heiferman bezeichnet Lewis Baltz' Landschaftsfotografie als »Topographie der Leere, des zufälligen, beschädigten, abgelegenen Ortes«. Die Bilder in der Serie »Candlestick Point« (1989) zeigen kalifornisches Brachland in der Bucht von San Francisco, Schutthaufen und Abfälle, die sich in der Mitte der Prärie sammeln. Die Spuren der technischen Landentwicklung, die wir lieber ausblenden: Entwässerungsrinnen, Wasserdämme. Baltz' fotografische Aufzeichnung der Entwicklung von Candlestick Point verbindet soziologische und analytische Strenge und ist stark an die Tradition der Land Art ausgerichtet. Die Serie »Candlestick Point« wurde im Jahr 1989 erstmals veröffentlicht und war dann für Jahrzehnte nur als teures Sammlerstück auf dem Markt. Die vorliegende Veröffentlichung macht sie in einer hochwertigen Ausgabe endlich wieder zugänglich. (Text engl.) 32 x 24,5 cm, 128 Seiten, 84 Abb., davon 12 farb., Quellenverzeichnis, geb.
