Dan Graham's New Jersey is the first book to compile Graham's photographs of New Jersey from 1966 to the present. Collecting the original photographs from Graham's iconic Homes for America series, Dan Graham's New Jersey pairs these with new photographs taken in the context of a study trip with the architecture faculty of Columbia University. The new images exhibit stark similarities to the older ones, taken in the same suburban locations that Graham photographed in the 1960s. The juxtaposition creates a fascinating play of repetitions and differences that raise questions regarding the future of architecture, suburbia, and public space.
With essays by Mark Wasiuta and Mark Wigley.
