Joachim Brohm's Columbus, Ohio

Columbus, Ohio has been on my mind lately as there are a couple trips planned to this city East of here this month (here's to getting a membership to the Wexner!). I checked out Joachim Brohme's Ohio from interlibrary loan and have been fascinated by how much (or little) things have changed. There are many connections to Joel Sternfeld and Stephen Shore - the era and the subject matter photographed are eerily similar. Most of the images are of Columbus, taken when Brohm was attending Ohio State for his Master's degree.
