UPSTATE looks at the lingering legacy of American industrial and agricultural history in and around Hudson, New York. Combining poetic landscapes and interiors with portraiture, the images in Upstate express a quiet mystery and beauty while they revel in the vernacular. Like the Hudson River School painters who worked in the area in the 19th Century, Stauffer captures sublime elements while also revealing the shifting economic realities of the region.
Tema Stauffer is a photographer whose work examining the social, economic, and cultural landscape of American spaces has been exhibited internationally.
