Description - A Road Trip Journal by Stephen Shore
Stephen Shore is one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century. A pioneer of colour photography, his photographs of everyday American scenes paved the way for future art photographers like Martin Parr, Nan Goldin and Thomas Struth. This special, highly collectible, limited edition book - numbered and signed by the photographer - is a complete reproduction of the journal that Shore made on a month-long American road trip in 1973, during which he began work on his influential project Uncommon Places. In the journal Shore included his own photographs, lists detailing information on his travels like where he stayed, what he ate, how many miles he drove, and various ephemera like receipts and postcards. Each page of the journal is reproduced along with a plate section featuring every photograph he took on his journey to provide the complete story of the journey at this seminal moment in his career. The book also includes a set of postcards, reproductions of cards that Shore himself made and distributed on his journey, to ensure this is an essential title for any collector, photography enthusiast, or student.
