Martha Rosler: Runway, from the series House Beautiful: Bringing the War Home, (c. 1967–1972)

I nearly fell out of bed last night while listening to the Modern Art Notes podcast.  Interviewee in the second part of the show was artist/feminist/activist Martha Rosler (b.1943) and, while making herself lunch during the phone interview by the sounds of it, she casually mentioned Lewis Baltz, in the context of them both photographing landscape as land-use. I know he was a fairly marginal figure for most people into photography, so as a loooOooooong time fan it's a super-special moment for me when he gets a mention out there in the world.
