Images by Joel Sternfeld
Photographer Joel Sternfeld, born in New York in 1944, has a truly outstanding portfolio. Rivalling the legendary William Egglestone, he pioneered colour photography as an art form in the US, in the second half of the twentieth century.
See a selection of images from the 70s through to the present at the Luhring Augustine website.
Amongst my favourites has to be the landing of Space Shuttle Columbia atop a 747 in 1979, and his haunting coverage of the High Line – before it was transformed into a park – in the early 2000s.
