Uncommon Places. Photographs by Stephen Shore. Aperture/ A New Images Book, Millerton, New York, 1982. First edition. Oblong quarto. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. 61 color reproductions.
Perfectly observed photographs of contemporary America presented in flawless color. Architect Robert Venturi summed up Stephen Shore's talent in the following way: "Shore's is the art of the deadpan - rejecting exotic composition, artful editing, or facile simplification. He accepts the threadbare banality of the American scene, the jerry-rigged, down-at-the-heels seediness of our rural landscapes and the spatial looseness of our towns, recapturing the overfamiliar, making it poignant, coherent, and almost lovable."
