On page six of this large book, Stephen Shore writes, in the Artist's Note, 'The book you are holding in your hands amounts to what might be called the photographic equivalent of a director's cut.' and in the nature of such things you now get an additional ninety-four photos with the forty-nine that were in the original1982 Aperture edition of the book, though this is not strictly true because some that were in the original are not in this edition.
I bought the original book because I loved the way Shore captured the everyday urban American outdoors and of course the amazing colour and detail. This new edition is even better because the photos are now larger (mostly 10.5 by 8.25 inches). The other thing I love about some of these photos is the way Shore captures the street corner, this seems to be a favorite composition (stretching back to the famous FSA photos of the Thirties) with contemporary photographers and Photorealists painters like Richard Estes or Davis Cone. Shore's 'El Paso Street, Texas, July 5, 1975' could just as easily be an Estes painting. There are several corner photos in the book and they are just stunning.
I have seen comments about the amount of detail in these photos, helped of course by the two hundred plus dot screen, the original book used a 175 dpi. Apart from the screen it is interesting to compare images that appear in both books and the colour does vary. 'Beverly Boulevard, June 21 1975' in the original (page 39) is predominately brown for the street area, in this edition (page 115) it has changed to a predominately blue cast. I wonder if this is the sort of thing that concerns collectors of first edition photo books?

Von Dr. Priesnitz TOP 1000 REZENSENT am 11. Januar 2014
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Der amerikanische Fotograf Stephen Shore, Jahrgang 1947, gilt neben William Eggleston als einer der ersten Protagonisten der Kunstfarbfotografie der 1970er Jahre und gilt überdies als Zeitchronist dieser Ära. Bereits im Alter von 14 Jahren konnte er drei seiner Fotografien an das Museum of Modern Art verkaufen. Außerdem arbeitete er im Zeitraum von 1965 bis1967 in der berühmten "Factory" von Andy Warhol als Schwarz - Weiß - Fotograf. Im Alter von 25 Jahren begann er verschiedene Reisen durch Nordamerika zu unternehmen, wobei er sein Auge für das Profane schärfte, also Bilder, die den Amerikanern täglich begegnen und dennoch im Alltäglichen nicht in ihrer Ästhetik bewusst sind. Das Profane wird bei Shore zur Kunst. Damit steht er auch in der Tradition der Bewegung der amerikanischen Fotorealisten, die solche Fotos als Vorlage für ihre Malerei nutzen. Das Bild "J.J. Summers Agency, First Street, Duluth, Minessota" erinnerte mich sogar an noch ältere realistische Malerei von Edward Hopper.

So erkundete Stephen Shore mit seiner Kamera auf seinen Reisen in den 70ern die USA. Seine Kamera richtete er auf das Land und die Vielfalt seiner Erscheinungen. Dazu zählen Themenbereiche aus anonymer Vorstadtarchitektur, Parkplätzen, Straßenkreuzungen, Einkaufzentren, Gewerbegebieten, Tankstellen, Innenansichten, Porträts, und Landschaften. Er begegnet der sichtbaren Welt mit einem Respekt, der auf der Maxime gründet, dass dem Alltäglichen das Außergewöhnliche schon eingeschrieben ist. Man muss es nur entdecken. Das Alltägliche entwickelt durch die Linse der Kamera eine unerwartete Magie.

5.0 von 5 Sternen '...and now, the rest of the story'. 14. Juni 2004
Von Robin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
On page six of this large book, Stephen Shore writes, in the Artist's Note, "The book you are holding in your hands amounts to what might be called the photographic equivalent of a director's cut". It is in the nature of such things you now get an additional ninety-four photos with the forty-nine that were in the original 1982 Aperture edition, though this is not strictly true because some that were in the original are not in this edition.

I bought the original book because I loved the way Shore captured the everyday urban American outdoors and of course the amazing color and detail. This new edition is even better because the photos are now larger, mostly 10.5 by 8.25 inches. The other thing I love about some of these photos is the way Shore captures the street corner, this seems to be a favorite composition (stretching back to the famous FSA photos of the Thirties) with contemporary photographers and Photorealists painters like Richard Estes or Davis Cone. Shore's 'El Paso Street, Texas, July 5, 1975' could just as easily be an Estes painting. There are several corner photos in the book and they are just stunning.

Another reviewer has commented on the amount of detail in these photos, helped of course by the two hundred plus screen, the original book used a 175 dpi. Apart from the screen it is interesting to compare images that appear in both books and the color does vary. 'Beverly Boulevard, June 21 1975' in the original (page 39) is predominately brown for the street area, in this edition (page 115) it has changed to a predominately blue cast. I wonder if this is the sort of thing that concerns collectors of first edition photo books?

In addition to the photos in this beautifully designed and printed book there are two text pieces, the first one, by Stephen Schmidt-Wulffen, includes twelve photos from Shore's 'American Surfaces'. The back of the book includes biographical notes and a useful bibliography.

This latest 'Uncommon Places' will be a book I'll look through for some years to come.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing Uncommon Here.... 9. Februar 2011
Von Emily - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Stephen Shore grew up in downtown New York. One day, he and a friend decided to drive to Amarillo, Texas and get out of the big city for a spell. Uncommon Places is a result of that trip. Although I'm not a huge fan of landscape photography, I enjoyed viewing what Shore thought was "uncommon" (the name of his book), as I grew up in rural and smalltown America and found many of the photos "commonplace." That is no disrespect to the artist, however. I find him incredibly compelling as an artist and a person.
What I find intriguing is that Shore reconnects one with those images from their past and also invites the viewer to see their smalltown landscape from a new, invigorating lens. The photos of small towns, diners, beaches, and movie theatres brought me to a place where I wondered "What is Common?" "What is Uncommon?" To Stephen, that would be my reality. He would find me and my reality, uncommon. Wow. Never considered that before. I, no doubt, would find his the same.
Shore is famous for winning critical acclaim when he was twenty-three, photographing Andy Warhol's Factory, the temple of underground art in the sixties.
Uncommon Places is a selection of forty-nine photographs taken between 1973 and 1981.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a TRUE master 24. April 2006
Von jack kerr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
this is one of the first great works of color photography, and is still as fresh and significant as it was 30 years ago. forget all the imitators of today's contemporary scene, this was one of the first and is still better than anything to come along since (with the exception of sternfeld's american prospects which is equally great).

and for those who say this is snapshot photography, think again. view camera, deliberation, and intent here are razor sharp and NOT filled with accidents or casual images.

4.0 von 5 Sternen First, read the interview at the back. 25. September 2013
Von Michael Haspert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
(So, this is me coming up to speed on Stephen Shore.)

At first I didn't get it. Page after page of what seemed snapshots except for the high level of detail. I was ready to dismiss it as a mystery-- "The Case of the Missing Point", to be precise.

HOWEVER, some of the shots brought me to a stop-- evocative far beyond the apparent ordinariness of the image. This made me suspect that I had missed something in the images I had dismissed. I didn't learn until the interview at the end of the book what he had been trying to do, or that he was using a view camera to do it. All these shots were 'deliberately trying to look casual', but were also very deliberately composed, with some kind of hook, usually in the detail. Aha. My second time through the book was much more enjoyable.

So if you are studying photography, this book is like a textbook in at least one way: It has some of the answers in the back-- Read the interview first.
5.0 von 5 Sternen this book of photographs by Stephen Shore has taken its place among my absolute favorite things in this world 3. Oktober 2014
Von Davy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
First, a declaration: this book of photographs by Stephen Shore has taken its place among my absolute favorite things in this world. I enjoyed every single gorgeous picture, every single page, even the blank ones (because of course they also have meaning). It is possible that I have never encountered an artist (of any type) with whom I share so much. Not just aesthetics, not just a sense of style and structure...these photos told me that Stephen Shore and I share a great deal more than that. He immortalizes views and landscapes -- intersections and backyards and window displays -- that exactly portray the way in which I strive daily to see the world. Let alone the way in which I try to take pictures. (Let that alone entirely.) He is tuned in to the unseen wavelength of quiet, unassuming vistas, and on my better days, I feel that tingle, too. Never has a book transported me so thoroughly. Never has a photo swallowed so much of my attention and focus all at once. I will return to this book often, I know it. And I will read the words again, too. The introduction and conversation are both vital discussions on the topic of Uncommon Places, and photography beyond that, and life beyond that. Uncommon Places indeed.
