AMERICAN SURFACES is a highly influential body of work by a master photographer who helped establish colour photography as a legitimate medium of artistic expression. The book is comprised of a chronological sequence of photographs of vernacular America taken in the early 1970s, most of which are previously unpublished. These photographs have been widely exhibited and discussed throughout Europe and the United States. AMERICAN SURFACES is styled as a photo-diary of Shore's travels across America, bridging the gap between the road trip tradition of Walker Evans and Robert Frank and the fascination with the ordinary exhibited by Bernd and Hilla Becher and Martin Parr. This new paperback edition is a must-have for everyone interested in the history of twentieth-century photography, and it is perfect for art and photography students.

At the age of 17, STEPHEN SHORE (b. 1947) was a regular at Andy Warhol's Factory. By the age of 23 he became the first living photographer to have a one-man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Shore is an unrivalled pioneer in his field, and his work has been exhibited in numerous museums worldwide and has influenced generations of photographers. In 1982 he was appointed Director of the Photography Program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he is the Susan Weber Soros Professor in the Arts.Review:
"As a recorder of the fleeting but highly charged moments in the everyday, the weight of Shore's influence is undeniable."-Creative Review "[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

Descrizione libro PHAIDON, 2008. PaperBack. Condizione libro: New. Photographer Stephen Shore's ground-breaking and largely unpublished series of photographs from 1972-3, took documentary photography to a new level. First exhibited at the cutting edge New York City Light Gallery, this visual diary of Shore's travels across the United States confounded critics. Displayed as hundreds and hundreds of color photographs, processed simply at Kodak labs in New Jersey, they bore stark contrast to the formal, black-and-white prints that were recognized as art photography at the time. And, since its break-through MoMA exhibition where 220 of Shore's images were shown, American Surfaces has become a benchmark for documenting 'American culture'. Codice libro della libreria 2420190
