Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places (Scarce Hardbound 1st edition, SIGNED!) Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places (Scarce Hardbound 1st edition, SIGNED!)
"Shore 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."—Robert Venturi

Taken on travels from Maine to Florida to Montana between 1973 and 1981, Uncommon Places represents some of the most important color work produced during the 1970s. Shore's influence on the contemporary vogue for vernacular American imagery shot in color—along with that of William Eggleston—cannot be overstated. (See, for example, Where We Live: Photographs of America from the Berman Collection, currently on view at the Getty in Los Angeles.)
A gorgeous signed copy of the scarce, hardbound 1st edtion!!

Lee Friedlander: Family Lee Friedlander: Family
Now out-of-print, limited copies are still available of both the trade and limited editions.
"In Family, Friedlander departs from his well-known terrain of the open road and the city street, focusing instead on his wife, Maria, his children and (later) his grandchildren. The result is an intimate narrative of a family's complex life, from 1958 to the present.

The special edition of Lee Friedlander Family is limited to 30 signed and numbered copies, slipcased in a custom box and accompanied by an original, signed photograph: Seattle, 1970."—the publisher

Donovan Wylie: The Maze Donovan Wylie: The Maze
"Institutional architecture is a popular theme amongst those adopting the typological approach. But at a time when the world's attention is focused more than ever on the ethics of imprisonment and methods of containment, Wylie's book is extremely pertinent, and therefore an especially potent example of the genre."—from The Photobook: A History volume II READ MORE

Matthew Sleeth: Tour of Duty Matthew Sleeth: Tour of Duty
"Sleeth, by concentrating on what seems to be a side show, is making a serious point about the way in which history is not only manipulated, but constructed. With vivid imagery, he is documenting how the First World can virtually do what it likes when it comes to dealing with the Third World. His brillant book demonstrates that the West literally has the power of life and death over poorer countries, a better way of life being its gift to give"—from The Photobook: A History volume II

Axel Hutte: North/South Axel Hutte: North/South
"As the title suggests, North/South presents two groupings of work, one focusing on barren, gray northern climates and one on lush, wet southern locations. Both groups focus exclusively on the natural world, not evincing a trace of human presence. Hütte favors vantage points and compositions that flatten space and create a sense of floating over the landscape, removing from the landscape even the presence of the photographer (and thus the viewer)."—Reviewed by Aaron Rothman READ MORE
