In John Pfahl’s first major body of work, the renowned series Altered Landscapes, Pfahl used everyday materials such as string and tape to create three-dimensional disruptions in the landscape that looked two-dimensional in the photograph. By inserting patently false lines, and incursions into sometimes banal, often picturesque landscapes, Pfahl pointed out and played up the photographer’s authority over the scene. His point has been that the photograph is a creation, whether altered or not. The importance of this self-consciousness in the mid-1970s is hard to overemphasize.

In this series, taken in the 1970s and newly printed, Pfahl presents images that are not altered but are no less compelling as the sites (and sights) are charming, funny, or surprising. Four decades after Altered Landscapes, Pfahl's work continues to elucidate intricacy of photographic practices and his printing continues to be—and has been—impeccable. He is a master of the photographic landscape’s complexity and wit.
