Published in conjuction with the exhibition at Luhring Augustine, Oxbow Archive represents a continuation of Sternfeld's interest in utopic/distopic possibilities as seen in his previous works This volume collects 77 of the quietly haunting photographs that Sternfeld made over a year-and-a-half, starting in 2006. His choice of subject matter--a flat, unremarkable corn and potato field--signals a conceptual stance away from previous nature depictions: His field is neither beautiful, nor sublime, nor picturesque. Its flatness offers an eloquent emptiness, as well as a vessel for the true subject of this work--the effects of human consumption upon the natural world.
