The photo volume 'Winslow Arizona' by Stephen SHORE includes the one-day images from the small American town of Winslow - known from SHORE's out-of-print tile 'American Surfaces' - that SHORE returned to in 2014 to photograph and share as part of Doug Aitken's nomad project 'Station to Station 'on a big screen at the stop of the train in Winslow.
"'Winslow Arizona' features a selection of images Stephen SHORE presented in contemporary artist Doug Aitken’s project 'Station to Station', which involved a trans-American journey by train. For the project, which Aitken calls a 'nomadic happening,” he rented a train, which departed from New York and traveled to nine cities, including Minneapolis, through the southwest, and finally arriving San Francisco in a three-week journey. He invited artists, writers, filmmakers, and performers to participate, and staged a 'happening', which involved exhibitions and performances, at each stop. The images in Winslow Arizona, which Stephen SHORE shot in a day while revisiting Winslow, Arizona, where he made his seminal work 'American Surfaces, are presented unedited, in the order that he shot them, making it an improvis'ational work."
