First published in 1987, Joel Sternfeld: American Prospects is the classic photo record of 1980s America. This definitive edition, made with new plates and including one additional photograph, offers a spectacular, funny, sad, and soberly riveting portrait of diverse possibilities and prospects in the Reagan era. An essay by Kerry Brougher, Chief Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, considers the historical context of Sternfeld’s book and the pivotal role that it has played in the evolution of contemporary filmmaking and art photography.
