Michael Christopher Brown. Congo. Goma. 2012.

.

". . . A friend mine, who was there and whose house was also destroyed, had a childhood dream to be a pilot. But his parents were too poor and all the schools were expensive, so he could not hold onto that dream. He forgot about it, but then on that day, when we needed to move the plane, he told me to help him inside so he might steer it! We all pushed the plane as my friend waved his arm out the window, in the cockpit. We then climbed in the plane and saw the lava flowing down the volcano and into town."

Joel Sternfeld's work - especially his American Prospects series - reminds me of a lot of Jeff Wall's complex, wide format compositions, but with one crucial difference: Sternfeld's work is not staged.
