Background informationIssued in conjunction with a 1995 Sprengel Museum exhibition in recognition of his award of the DG Bank Forderpreis Fotografie, the catalogue 'Landscapes for the Homeless' by Anthony HERNANDEZ was published.
"By the 1980s, he was working with large format cameras, which necessitated a slower and more deliberate shooting style. (...) By the 1990s, his style shifted, as he concentrated on color and close-up details. Most of his pictures since the mid-1980s are devoid of human subjects--although their presence is felt. Projects such as 'Landscapes for the Homeless' (1988-91), 'Waiting for Los Angeles' (1996-98), and 'Everything (The Los Angeles River Basin)' (2003-2004) documented how the city's human presence has been reduced to the traces and debris left by destructive social forces."
