Tomorrow is the last chance to see the Joel Sternfeld exhibition at Luhring Augustine gallery. The exhibition is comprised of large-scale photographic prints from Sternfeld’s new Oxbow Archive series, which is featured in the current issue of Aperture magazine. The images exhibited both in the show and the magazine document seasonal changes taking place in a nondescript field of Massachusetts. As Aperture contributor Gretel Ehrlich notes in her article on the series, these images not only capture the scenery, but also are symbolic reminders of climate change. Sternfeld describes the field in his images as, “just an ordinary field. Completely unmemorable.” Yet he notes, “no matter how often I come, it’s never enough. There’s so much here. Every minute brings change…the scene is a whole story in itself.”
