Joe Deal

Joe Deal: Southern California Photographs, 1976-86
by Mark Johnstone
Publisher's Description
"Joe Deal is arguably the photographer who best exemplifies the approach to photographing the man-altered landscape that became known as the new Topographics. His keen observation and sense of the ironies of the population and building explosion in the Los Angeles basin make his photographs resonate with the tensions of the human relationship to the landscape."--the publisher. "Deal introduces his camera into a world where no artist has ever been before: a world of ravaged vegetation and bulldozed landforms, of frame tract houses being built in a confusion of scrap lumber and chicken wire and bits of styrofoam floating in the air."--J.B. Jackson.
