Lewis Baltz, Anechoic Chamber, France Telecom Laboratories, Lannion, France, 1989-91, 2012.
Accompanying his exhibition at the Kestnergesellschaft (September 14 - November 4, 2012) Hanover, Germany, Lewis Baltz has created this limited edition print, which is exclusively available at the Kestnergesellschaft. Baltz worked at the US-American westcoast during the in the 1970s and was the first artist working with photography to be included in the program of the prestigious Leo Castelli Gallery in New York. With an objective glance, he turned his camera on the American life and its changes through the boom of the postwar period: Newly created industrial plants, burgeoning suburbs and the associated social impacts are the focus of his serial works. His works focus on series of images that allow him to shed light on different facets of a topic and to show the viewer no single iconic image, but the depiction of movement and change. The series are also characterized by a minimalist style of composition and often contain only a few architectural elements, so they become almost abstract photographic work.
