Publisher's presentation :

"Survey book, accompanying the MAPFRE Foundation traveling exhibition, and offering the most complete view to date of Stephen Shore's work."

Publisher's longer presentation in French :

"Cet ouvrage rétrospectif, accompagnant l’exposition itinérante de la Fondation Mapfre, offre la vision la plus complète à ce jour de l’oeuvre de Stephen Shore, considéré comme l’une des figures les plus influentes de la photographie contemporaine. De ses projets en couleur Uncommon Places et American Surfaces dans les années 1970 où Shore bouscule les conventions avec sa pratique de l’instantané à d’autres séries plus récentes, parfois inédites, cet ouvrage met en évidence la démarche du photographe qui ne cesse d’interroger le médium lui-même tout en effaçant le plus possible son empreinte.

Un long entretien de l’artiste avec David Campany ainsi que plusieurs textes critiques dont celui de Marta Dahó, commissaire de l’exposition de la Fondation Mapfre, mettent en lumière les liens entre ces différentes séries et l’approche conceptuelle de Stephen Shore. Une chronologie détaillée et une bibliographie sélective, établies par Carlos Martín García, accompagnent ces textes."

The exhibition for which this book was published was on display at the "Rencontres d'Arles 2015" festival.

Texts in French (NB : English version of the book from APerture currently not available from us).

Shore, Stephen

Stephen Shore is an American photographer, mainly known for his color work. He is famous for both anecdotal elements and important contributions. Aged 14, he is already a photographer and manages to meet Edward Steichen, then DIrector of Photography at the MoMA, New York, and the legend buys 3 prints from him. A few years later, from 1965 to 1965, he documents life at Andy Warhol's Factory as he is barely 18. Then in 1971, at the age of 24, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York offers him a solo exhibition! It is in 1972 that he will switch from B&W to color photography, at about the same time as his contemporary William Eggleston. His photographs speak of day to day America, may it be nature, the city or the "suburbia"; but he also photographs the trivial or insignificant things of daily life, may it be motel interiors, a phone booth or a meal on a table... Stephen Shore is also famous for his photobooks, most importantly "Uncommon Places" (Aperture, 1982) and "American Surfaces" (Schirmer/Mosel, 1999) and also the theory book "The Nature of Photographs" (John Hopkins University Press, 1998 / Phaidon, 2007). More recently, he published with Mack "Transparencies: Small Camera Works 1971-1979" (2020), and "Steel Town" (2021). © Portrait by Raphaël Labbé

Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral: "“The slow ruin of a man with no ties, a refugee from a long expedition, which repeats itself from room to room.” Antoine d’Agata does not stage the world he photographs, he is merely the silent witness, the assiduous spectator. He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these...
