A shining white trailer home floats out of place on a sea of rolling desert hills. Joel Sternfeld's large, tripod-mounted view camera gave him a cool, detached viewpoint, letting him describe the scene in relentless detail. His detachment highlights the uneasy relationship between humans and nature that informs many pictures in his American Prospects series.
