Joel Sternfeld’s new book ‘Rome After Rome’, published by Steidl

Joel Sternfeld’s new book Rome After Rome is published by Steidl. In 1992, the acclaimed photographer visited the Italian capital and its surrounding area, publishing a body of work that focused on the city’s famous ancient ruins in an attempt to explore how the once prosperous site of ancient civilisation fell.

In this new book, Sternfeld includes images from this collection with numerous unpublished pictures. Photographs in the book seek to understand the relationship between modernity and the Ancient world, and how people and the city’s recent infrastructure co-exist with historic sites.

The hardcover book, presented in a clothbound slipcase, includes over seventy images reproduced in exquisite colour, for which the artist is most celebrated. Click here for more information.
