Originally published in 1987, Sternfeld’s American Prospects is a search for the truth of a country not just as it exists in a particular era but as it is in its every-evolving essence. It is a sad poem, yes, but also a funny and generous one, one that recognizes endurance, poignant beauty and determination within its sometimes tense, often ironic juxtapositions of man and nature, technology and ruin. Long out of print but always in demand, American Prospects, Sternfeld’s first published book of photographs, is here reprinted in a larger format and with new essays by Kerry Brougher, Andy Grundberg and Anne W. Tucker.
