"A turning point in the history of photography, the 1975 exhibition New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape signaled a radical shift away from traditional depictions of landscape. Pictures of transcendent natural vistas gave way to unromanticized views of stark industrial landscapes, suburban sprawl, and everyday scenes not usually given a second glance."
