"Published by Aperture in 1982 and long unavailable, Stephen Shore's legendary Uncommon Places has influenced a generation of photographers. Among the first artists to take color beyond advertising and fashion photography, Shore's large-format color work on the American vernacular landscape stands at the root of what has become a vital photographic tradition.
As a new generation of artists expands on the projects of the New Topographic and New Color photographers of the seventies - Thomas Struth (whose first book was titled Unconscious Places), Andreas Gursky and Catherine Opie among them -Uncommon Places provides a timely opportunity to reexamine the diverse implications of Shore's project and offers a fundamental primer for the last 30 years of large-format color photography."
