Rohrbach writes: “Where through the 1970s and 1980s the ‘New Topographics’ generation led by Robert Adams and Lewis Baltz drew photographic attention to the expansion of suburbia across the open West, Anthony Hernandez now asks us to take account of the failures, the pulling back from over-exuberant expectation. Capitalism, of course, is built on optimism and growth, but just as central to its being is failure. We can’t all be winners; bust inevitably follows boom.
While some initiatives survive, others go under, abandoned to the banks and discarded to the scourges of time and happenstance. The subject offers pathos and an enticing undercurrent of violence. But where others generally embrace the romance of the struggle against the harsh climate, emphasizing isolation and self-sufficiency, Hernandez reminds us of the essentialness of community in these rough places.”
