Here are the last handful—all signed—of Lewis Baltz’s The new Industrial Parks Near Irvine, California, the first Steidl edition of Baltz’s seminal 1974 book. In the late 1960s and early ’70s Baltz became fascinated by the stark, repellent, manmade landscape that was rolling over California’s then still agrarian terrain; The new Industrial Parks Near Irvine, California is the best known of his projects on the subject. With this book Baltz took his place near the center of the New Topographic movement, a newly coined term emblematic of a cool, distanced, yet critical view of the emerging man-altered landscape. The Topographic position, detached and glacial, has since widely influenced photographic practice.
