A photographers' photo book.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places: The Complete Works (Hardcover)
This is a beautifully presented, produced and well rounded book that presents an aspect of Stephen Shore's work very well. The relatively large and landscape format does great justice to the large format images and the colour has a very negative film feel to it as opposed to a colour reversal, contrasty transparency one.
Some would argue the images seem hum-drum and ordinary looking, they may even say theres a bit of "I could do that" about them. I would say those folk are not looking at, merely seeing the pictures.
Anyone with a nostalgic nemory of what the US was like in the 1970's and 80's will really like this I believe.
It is a period piece this heavy book, and I like it tremendously.
Well worth the purchase and at a terrific price with excellent despatch - so great value
