Among his earliest works, this image belongs to a group of what Lewis Baltz called Prototypes, made during and directly after his student years (c. 1967-1973). These were photographs of recent residential and commercial “subarchitecture” in his home state of California and some of the earliest artworks to show the disturbing transformation of the American landscape into an unending terrain of anonymous buildings. These are also among the first photographs to search for the reductive forms of Minimalist and Post-Minimalist art in the outside world. The Prototype Works isolate objects in the constructed environment and invite the viewer to see them as image-objects in their own right.

In 1971, upon seeing the Prototypes, gallery owner Leo Castelli promptly agreed to exhibit Baltz’s photographs, remaining Baltz’s American representative until the artist relocated to Europe nearly twenty years later.

A print of this image is in the collection of the Sheldon Art Museum, University of Nebraska, Lincoln. – A few light spots, rubbed spots and pressure marks in margins, minimal pressure marks in left area of image, otherwise in very good condition.
