New Topographics

In 1975, the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York, featured the work of ten contemporary photographers in an exhibition titled New Topographics, which became an important milestone in photographic history. The subtitle of the exhibition was “photographs of a man-altered landscape” and the images, most of them in black and white, captured distinctly unheroic vistas. The subjects were primarily new housing developments in various stages of completion, indicators of development from newly-laid roads to mounds of dirt.

These “man-altered landscapes” were a far cry from the celebration of pristine natural beauty which had been a favorite subject of modern photographers. The comparably nondescript images of the New Topographics—as the photographers included in the exhibition came to be known—outlined a new subject as well as a new aesthetic. Taken together, they posed questions about the ever-expanding sprawl of housing developments and the social and environmental implications of this unchecked growth.
