San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
San Francisco, CA,
For the past 15 years, renowned photographer Joel Sternfeld has traveled the
United States photographing the American landscape and its people. Authentic,
ironic and sensitive, the resulting portraits -- modern-day twists on the work of Walker
Evans, Robert Frank and August Sander -- document the diverse realities and
circumstances of our times.
Organized by SFMOMA, Stranger Passing presents 60
large-format color photographs that reveal the complexities of contemporary
American society with rare wit and insight.
