headshotNew California Views, 1979

Complete portfolio published by Victor Landweber, printed c. 1979, edition 100, containing 20 photographs in various media, each print is signed and has the name of artist printed on sleeve. with 2 booklets (one limited edition, screenprinted and one generic general distribution copy). The photographs are encased in the original custom box, which is covered in a bright kelly green fabric with screenprinted lining and measures 21 x 16 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches, in excellent condition.

The New California Views (1964-1979) portfolio was assembled and produced in 1979 by photographer and publisher, Victor Landweber. The photographs represent a variety of processes and subject matter, and date from 1975 to 1979, with the exception of Garry Winogrand's picture from the 1960s. The portfolio’s stated intention was to identify artists creating "remarkable new views of California … while relating their work to the image of California as one of photography's great and enduring themes. In the years following World War II, the center of landscape photography shifted from Northern to Southern California, and was accompanied by a radical shift in style and attitude. Once dominated by the romantic sensibilities of photographer Ansel Adams, the landscape now became a subject of unflinching objectivity. Photographers like Joe Deal, Stephen Shore and Henry Wessel, featured in the seminal exhibition, New Topographics (1975), and their colleagues including Richard Misrach, Roger Minick, Catherine Wagner and Arthur Taussig, documented California’s rapidly changing suburban landscape and the replacement of farmland by tract homes and industrial parks. Despite the modest claims of its title, New California Views is significant for its early comprehension of the seismic shift that was taking place in California landscape photography and the inclusion of work by the photographers instrumental in that shift.
