Uncommon Places

Share:

The Galerie Edwynn Houk presents an exhibition of Stephen Shore’s vintage color photographs from his hallmark body of work “Uncommon Places”. On view in Zurich, Switzerland, until May 7, 2016.

In 1973, following his exhibition at the Metropolitan, Stephen Shore (b. 1947 New York) embarked on a road trip across the country with the intention to document his experiences in detail using a large-format camera, marking a milestone in the history of photography. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in 1974 and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1975, Shore continued his travels for the next six years to create the series Uncommon Places depicting what he describes as, “the built American environment." The series is highly regarded both for Shore’s innovative use of color and his approach to the 1970’s American vernacular landscape, which he captured with a detached air, an interest in formal composition, and an absence of overt commentary.



For the current exhibition, Galerie Edwynn Houk presents a selection of 15 original vintage photographs from the Uncommon Places series printed at the time of Shore’s travels in the 1970’s. Later reimagined as large-scale editions using contemporary materials and printing processes, these pristinely conserved early works demonstrate Shore’s original intention and vision through the preservation of the original paper, scale, and palette.
