Joshua Lutz began photographing the Meadowlands ten years ago as a a documentary study of the 32-square-miles of marshy wilderness that sits between New Jersey and New York (while ostensibly searching for the remains of Jimmy Hoffa). Over the years, however, this project evolved into a compelling artistic exploration, revealing the soul of this liminal space. But Lutz’s photographs are not only representations of the landscape of the Meadowlands; they are also portraits of the individuals who inhabit the area. Lutz’s photographs explore the distinct personalities of the “Meadowlands,” while also considering the people’s relationships to the environs.
