Stephen Shore: Survey

Text by Marta Dahó, Sandra S. Phillips, Horacio Fernández. Interview by David Campany.

Featured image, from <I>Uncommon Places</I> (1973-1979), is reproduced from <I>Stephen Shore: Survey</I>.Stephen Shore has had a significant influence on multiple generations of artists and photographers. Even for the youngest photographers working today, his work remains an ongoing and indisputable reference point. Stephen Shore: Survey includes over 250 images that span Shore's impressive and productive career. The images range from 1969 to 2013, with series such as Early Works, Amarillo, New York City, American Surfaces and Uncommon Places, among others. Stephen Shore: Survey elucidates Shore's contributions, as well as the historiographical interpretations of his work that have influenced photographic culture over the past four decades. The narrative of the catalogue is conceptualized around three particularly revealing aspects of Shore's work, including his analysis of photographic and visual language, his topographical approach to the contemporary landscape and his significant use of color within a photographic context. The images are accompanied by an interview between David Campany and Shore, as well as texts by Sandra S. Phillips, Marta Dahó and Horacio Fernández. Published for his first ever retrospective exhibition, this essential catalogue also features a complete bibliography and chronology.Stephen Shore (born 1947) had his work purchased by Edward Steichen for The Museum of Modern Art, New York, at age 14. At 17, Shore was a regular at Andy Warhol's Factory, producing an important photographic document of the scene, and in 1971, at the age of 24, he became the first living photographer since Alfred Stieglitz to have a solo show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He has had numerous one-man shows, including those at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester, New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and the Art Institute of Chicago. Since 1982, he has been director of the photography program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he is the Susan Weber Professor in the Arts.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

TIME Lightbox

Phil Bicker

An exploration of Stephen Shore's groundbreaking photography split into three parts, Survey dissects the complex ideas behind Shore's deceptively straight-forward images.

Bookforum

Richard B. Woodward

This substantial catalogue, published by Fundacion Mapfre/Aperture, is-suprisingly-the frist to explore Shore's remarkable life adn career in depth. The selection of 250 images spans six decades and includes his rarely exhibited black-and-white work: New York street pictures, including a gritty bunch from the mid-'60s and a more stately one from 200; nature studies in Essex County, New York, taken in 1990; and a portrait from Luzzara, Italy, taken in 1993. There are chapters highlighting his familiar style in color with a view camera-Ukraine and Arizona landscapes-as well as one of his embrace of digital print on demand technology. But the bulk of the plates and writings here are devoted, rightfully, to the 70's, when Shore completed two exceptional projects, "American Surfaces" and "Uncommon Places". It is hard to imagine them as products of the same artist, so antithetical do they seem in how they are organised and in what subjects they memorialize.

Stephen Shore: Survey

Stephen Shore: Survey

"Michael and Sandy Marsh" (Amarillo, Texas, September, 27, 1974) is reproduced from Stephen Shore: Survey, the first in-depth survey of the influential American photographer's work, releasing this week. In the published interview noted photography historian David Campany asks Shore about approaching MoMA's John Szarkowski at the age of 18. "Oh yes. Szarkowski arrived around 1963. In 1965 I started photographing Warhol and the Factory. I would go to John and ask to show him the work I was doing. The thing is anyone could have walked in to MoMA but there were so few of us. I'd never been published at all, I wasn't a known 'name' but I just called up and asked to see him. And as time went on I would show him work regularly. I feel that more than anyone he was my teacher. Whenever I had a new body of work I'd bring it to him. But that relationship came later: in 1965 I think he saw me because there were very few photographers asking to see him. It was a different world. Even in the early 70s, when Harold Jones opened Light Gallery in New York, anyone could come in off the street, sit down and show Harold their portfolio and talk with him. But by the end of the 70s the position of photography had changed and gallerists couldn't do that. I think there was also a change in attitude. Joel Sternfeld refers to the early time of color as its 'early Christian era.' But in the 70s we also felt like initiates. As a parallel, in the 80s the photography scene in Italy was somewhat like it was in America in the 60s, as primitive and unrecognized. A group of photographers there called themselves I Fratelli del Deserto! That was the feeling. We were bothers in this arcane craft." continue to blog
