Críticas:

David Freund: Gas Stop represents a monumental achievement in photojournalism. A grand scope sharpened through a short time span creates a diverse group portrait of the United States . . . The photographs are candid and off-the-cuff, preserving moments otherwise forgotten in the flow of the quotidian.--Karl Wolff "New York Journal of Books "

...an everyman portrait of America.--The Guardian

Reseña del editor:

In the twentieth century, any American driver or passenger would stop at gas stations at least weekly, and not just for gas. Gas stations were also oases offering food and drink, car repairs, directions, maps and, importantly, bathrooms. Yet, beyond their appreciation as roadside novelties, their offerings to American culture, landscape and history have been little photographed.

From 1978 to 1981, David Freund analyzed the culture, architecture and landscape of gas stations in more than forty states. The photographs show customers and workers in postures and actions peculiar to gassing up, or just hanging out. Architecture and signage, both corporate and vernacular, beckon passing drivers. Regional landscapes hold and surround gas stations, each with its own landscape of designed plantings or scrappy volunteers. Stations were also outposts for American networks other than petroleum, seen in telephone booths, mailboxes and powerlines. These and all that surrounds them spark recognition and recollection, accruing as elements of a nonlinear American narrative.

While Freund’s primary concern is for his photographs to engage and surprise, he acknowledges nostalgia and uses it to imbue his subjects with a compelling sense of belonging. Of more than 200,000 gas stations in the United States at the time of this project, today they and their roles are mostly gone, existing now in memory and in this work.

At the outset of Gas Stop I was surprised at the range of themes presented at gas stations. Driving by, their commonplaceness might evince little inspiration for photos, but at an even halfway busy station, all I had to do was hang around to discover unexpected topical and visual variety. David Freund

Descripción Steidl Publishers, Germany, 2017. Hardback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Made between 1978 and 1981, Freund s images of gas stations in over 40 states record a lost America In postwar America, any driver or passenger would stop at gas stations at least weekly, and not just for gas. Gas stations were also oases offering food and drink, repairs, directions, maps and, importantly, bathrooms. Although appreciated as roadside novelties, their significance for American culture, landscape and history has been little documented. From 1978 to 1981, David Freund analyzed the culture, architecture and landscape of gas stations in more than 40 states. At the outset of Gas Stop, he writes, I was surprised at the range of themes presented at gas stations.

Freund s photographs show customers and workers in postures and actions particular to filling up their cars, or just hanging out. Architecture and signage, both corporate and vernacular, beckon passing drivers. Of the more than 200,000 gas stations extant at the time of this project, most are now gone, remaining only in this work. David Freund (born 1937) graduated from the Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester, and has taught at Pratt Institute and Ramapo College of New Jersey. He has had exhibitions at the Light Gallery, New York, and the George Eastman House, and he has received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and a CAPS grant. Freund s work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the BibliothEque Nationale, Paris, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
