Kids on Bikes Contemplating Farrah, 1977

California 1977

Joel Sternfeld
California, (#4), 1977

I could tell you about suburban California in the late 1970s, but Joel Sternfeld has already done it, silently and totally.

    Classic. I forwarded that to my buddy and he said, “That’s pretty much my childhood in one photo.”

    I wonder how much about the picture Sternfeld can tell us with words? Like why that kid with the poster is squinting and he’s holding it upside down…?

    Hoo boy, speaking of which, dig them flares. Wow. And are those knee patches? I know those all too well. Hard like cardboard and super annoying, yet they make your Toughskins last forever!
