I find the transition between Stephen shore’s early 70’s work & the later stuff very interesting so i’ve decided to follow last weeks post with Aperture publication “Uncommon Places" By Stephen Shore. Here he trades his small Rollei in for a view camera and spends 6 more years traversing the American landscape. The attention to detail is amazing & undoubtably excels due to the slower & more deliberate pace of shooting with an 8x10. Each spread has a descriptive quality that results in these 30 some year old pictures looking very fresh, not at all dated. Throughout the book there is also an underlying humour that I think is evident of American culture as well as Shores work in the 70’s.
