Pressestimmen

'[Shore's] exquisitely composed colour photographs became the benchmark for documenting our consumer-driven, fast-living world.' Lexus magazine 'fascinating' Metro 'One of the most remarkable, yet understated imagists of modern photography - Shore's skill at capturing mundane scenes and transforming them into crisp, fascinating images is unparalleled.' Gay Times 'Stephen Shore's American Surfaces covers rather familiar territory from 1972 and '73, yet it feels like a gift, and comes wrapped in that. The book itself-just and inch or so wider than a standard hardcover-is being sold inside a pouch mocked up to look like a bright yellow-orange Kodak color-finishing envelope...brilliant.' Art and Auction 'Looking at the pictures is like immersing yourself in a stranger's scrapbook, but in Shore's eyes, these people, these places, these plates of food are at once generic and iconic. ...a coffee cup on wood-grain Formica or the dusty sole of a woman's bare foot is transformed into a casual epiphany.' Vince Aletti, The New Yorker 'A wonderful collection of snap-shot photographs taken at the beginning of a remarkable career.' Picture

Synopsis

In 1972, Stephen Shore left New York City and set out with a friend to Amarillo, Texas. He didn't drive, so his first view of America was framed by the passenger's window frame. He was taken aback by the fact that his experience of life as a New Yorker had very little in common with the character and aspirations of Middle America. Later that year he set out again, this time on his own, with a driver's licence and a Rollei 35 - a point-and-shoot camera - to explore the country through the eyes of an everyday tourist. The project was entitled American Surfaces - referring to the superficial nature of his brief encounters with places and people and the underlying character of the images that he hoped to produce.With such an easy-to-use camera, he photographed relentlessly. 'In "American Surfaces", I was photographing almost every meal I ate, every person I met, every waiter or waitress who served me, every bed I slept in, every toilet I peed in. But also, I was photographing streets I was driving through, buildings I would see.' Shore returned to New York triumphant, with hundreds of rolls of film spilling from his bags.

In order to remain faithful to the conceptual foundations of the project, he followed the lead of most tourists of the time and sent his film to be developed and printed in Kodak's labs in New Jersey.The result was hundreds and hundreds of exquisitely composed colour pictures, whose subject became the benchmark for documenting of our fast-living, consumer-orientated world - a body of work that followed on from Walker Evans and Robert Frank's experiences of crossing America and that influenced reams of photographers such as Martin Parr and Bernd & Hilla Becher, who introduced a generation of students to Shore's work.

Classic Shore 16. August 2009
Von W. Rosen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While I prefer Uncommon Places, this is still an outstanding collection of early color photography and road trip imagery. If you can find it pick up a copy of the hardcover edition which comes housed in an old fashioned Kodak style film bag.
