Joel Sternfeld WALKING THE HIGH LINE  [signed]
Walking the High Line
Photography by Joel Sternfeld [signed]

Published by Steidl, Göttingen, Germany, and Pace/MacGill, New York, 2001. First edition. Signed by the Artist.

In Walking the High Line, Sternfeld, a potent force in American photography, shows us the hidden life of an abandoned elevated train line in Manhattan. He portrays a linear world within a world — “Sometimes a river of grass, sometimes more like wheat fields of Canada, this unique ruin permits contemplation of nature, and of cityscape. . . . In Walking the High Line, as in all of his work, landscape is read as a social and cultural indicator.” (From the publisher.) This hardcover volume of a thread of nature in an urban landscape unfolds in twenty-eight color and five black-and-white plates, and it includes essays by Adam Gopnik and John Stilgoe. It measures 10 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches, and totals 56 pages. Now out of stock at the publisher, this mint condition, signed first edition is a treasure.
