The States as seen by Sternfeld

A terrific exhibit of pictures by US American photography artist Joel Sternfeld is now on at one of Vienna’s most popular galleries.

The Albertina’s “Joel Sternfeld – Farbfotografien seit 1970” exhibition underlines the photographer’s imaginative skills and his ability of reflecting day to day life in a direct and blunt way. Sternfeld’s pictures portrays apparently average people on average days, but holding on to take some time for a second look – and second thoughts – is always something worth doing when it comes to studying his excellent works.

The 130 images on display as part of the Albertina exhibition show fast food restaurants and their employees and customers, policemen on duty and businesspeople on their way home in rush hour. One room of the exhibition is dedicated to a special project of the New York City-born photographer in which he took pictures of crime scenes.
