Stephen Shore:Uncommon Places: The Complete Works,
This review is from: Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places: The Complete Works (Hardcover)
If you are both a fan of large format colour photography and a disciple of the New Topographics movement of the 1970s, then this book is a must. Shore takes you on a journey across the USA and Canada, giving you a visual diary of the places and the people he encountered. It is not a travelogue, but a vital and beautiful chronicle of the life and times of 1970s USA. The way Shore can turn an ordinary scene into a multi-layered statement on the world around us is amazing. Oh, and by the way, the image and printing quality is second to none. Just marvel at the detail and the hidden secrets in the images.
