Joel Sternfeld’s First Pictures

Three decades after they were made, Joel Sternfeld’s earliest photographs have now been published as “First Pictures,” a selection of which are débuting today at Luhring Augustine Gallery. Taken between 1971 and 1980, the photographs document the travels of a young artist from busy streets to barefoot beaches, with inklings of Sternfeld’s now celebrated dark sense of humor, formalist experiments in color theory, and narrative tableaus.

Joel Sternfeld took a picture of me once, years ago.

His first words: “I’m not gay, but can I take your picture?”

He promised me a print and never delivered. 

Dude owes me big time.
