inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand


"Stephen SHORE's Uncommon Places is indisputably a canonic body of work - a touchstone for those interested in photography and the American landscape. Remarkably, despite having been the focus of numerous shows and books, including the eponymous 1982 Aperture classic book (expanded and reissued several times), this series of photographs has yet to be explored in its entirety.

Over the past five years, SHORE has scanned hundreds of negatives shot between 1973 and 1981.
For 'Selected Works, 1973-1981' an international group of 15 photographers, curators, authors, and cultural figures has been invited to select 10 images apiece from this rarely seen cache of images.
Each portfolio offers an idiosyncratic and revealing commentary on why this body of work continues to astound; how it has impacted the work of new generations of photography and the medium at large; and proposes new insight on SHORE's unique vision of America as transmuted in this totemic series.

Texts and image selections by Wes ANDERSON, Quentin BAJAC, David CAMPANY, Paul GRAHAM, Guido GUIDI, Takashi HOMMA, An-My LEE, Michael LESY, Hans Ulrich OBRIST, Francine PROSE, Ed RUSCHA, Britt SALVESEN, Taryn SIMON, Thomas STRUTH, and Lynne TILLMAN." (publisher's note)

About the photo´grapher Stephen SHORE:
At age fourteen, Stephen SHORE had his work purchased by Edward STEICHEN for the Museum of Modern Art, New York. At 17, SHORE was a regular at Andy WARHOL's Factory, producing an important photographic document of the scene, and in 1971, at the age of 23, he became the first living photographer since Alfred STIEGLITZ forty years earlier to have a solo show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
He has had numerous one-man shows, including those at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester; Kunsthalle Dusseldorf; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Jeu de Paume, Paris; and Art Institute of Chicago.
He has received two NEA grants and a Guggenheim Foundation grant. Since 1982 he has been director of the photography program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he is the Susan Weber Professor in the Arts.

""Stephen SHOREs 'Uncommon Places' ist unbestreitbar eine kanonische Arbeit - ein Prüfstein für an der Fotografie und der amerikanische Landschaft Interessierte. Bemerkenswert ist, dass diese Serie von Fotografien in ihrer Gesamtheit noch zu erforschen ist - trotz des Fokus' durch zahlreiche Ausstellungen und Bücher, darunter auch der 1982 erschienene Klassiker gleichen Namens.

In den vergangenen fünf Jahren hat Stephen SHORE Hunderte seiner zwischen 1973 und 1981 gemachten Negative gescannt. Für 'Selected Works, 1973-1981' wurde eine internationale Gruppe von 15 Fotografen, Kuratoren, Autoren und Kulturfiguren eingeladen, aus diesem selten gesehenen Auswahl 10 Bilder auszuprobieren.
Jedes Portfolio ist mit einem aufschlussreichen Kommentar versehen, warum dieser Teil der Arbeit erstaunt hat; wie es die Arbeit jüngerer Generationen beeinflusst hat.
