"Shore’s photographs in From Galilee to the Negev have all the hallmarks that have come to be associated with his images: the arresting formal structure, the deadpan humor, the cogent capturing of seemingly unremarkable visual details that our eyes usually pan over in everyday life. The book is a thoughtful and unexpected portrait of an area often approached only through its most obvious dichotomies."―Los Angeles Review of Books
About the Author
By the age of 14, three of Stephen Shore's photographs were acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. As a teenager he spent time in Andy Warhol’s Factory photographing the artist and his entourage. In 1971 Shore became the first living photographer to have a one-person show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His photographs have since been included in numerous shows, including the ‘American Surfaces’exhibition (Cologne and Frankfurt, 1999) and the Tate Modern’s successful 2003 ‘Cruel and Tender’exhibition. Shore is a pioneering and highly influential photographer; he is also an important teacher and is Director of the Photography Program at Bard College, New York.

Of course all these remarks are a good reason for anyone who is a book collector (like myself) or a photographer who is interested in the region (again like myself) to get this book. Yes, unfortunately this book is good solely for this reason. If one is looking for a typical Stephen Shore or a view of the land of Israel or the land of Palestine, thank God, there are MANY Israeli photographers who have done this wonderfully. Pity for such a great master and teacher.
