AmericaStoryPost-industrial city; Paterson by Tema Stauffer

Tema Stauffer is a photographer whose work examines the social, economic, and psychological landscape of American spaces.

Paterson (2009 – 2014), documents residents of a post-industrial city in New Jersey during the years following the economic crisis. Paterson is a historic city near the Great Falls of the Passaic River, once prosperous from its mills and silk manufacturing industry.

Founded in 1791 by Alexander Hamilton and others and envisioned as the nation’s first planned industrial city, Paterson offered jobs and opportunity to an immigrant labor force in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and it was a stop on the Underground Railroad. The city is the setting of novels by John Updike and Junot Diaz, and has inspired the poetry of William Carlos Williams and Allen Ginsberg, as well as the architectural photography of George Tice.  The third largest city in New Jersey, Paterson began to decline economically during the 1960s and 70s, and has continued to face high rates of unemployment since the recession. The portraits focus on the self-expression of working-class and economically marginalized Americans of the diverse racial and ethnic groups comprising Paterson’s population. Shot in natural light on the streets with a medium-format camera, each image explores the psychology of an individual who reveals him or herself willingly to the camera’s gaze.  The minimal backgrounds suggest the urban environments these subjects occupy; however, these straightforward, realist, and classically composed photographs concentrate on faces and the depth of human experience that is spoken through them.  These portraits contribute to a contemporary dialogue about the current economic reality and the experiences of Americans who exist on our ever-widening margins.

In accordance with the visual quality of the universe, when its geometric structure, form, rhytm, color and massic kinesis reduced to body, it reorganizes the senses and attributes meaning to phenomena.  The indefinite combination of the information received is the misconception of the colors, the physical dimensions, the continuity of the rhythm.
