Lewis Baltz

Coming to photographic attention in the 1970s as part of the New Topography movement, Baltz’s images address both architecture and landscape through documentation.  Far different from the iconic photos that previously defined the American landscape, his photographs investigate transitions between places, moments, or states of being.  Often placing emphasis on what is meant to be concealed or remain unseen, Baltz balances the focal points of his compositions with the secondary features of each environment— creating visually pleasing photographs with a sense of asymmetry.
