About American Surfaces

So, this is an updated edition of Shore's groundbreaking book. Now with previously unpublished photographs and a new introduction Stephen Shore's images from his travels across America in 1972-73 are considered the benchmark for documenting the extraordinary in the ordinary and also continue to influence photographers today. So, the original edition of American Surfaces, published by Phaidon, in 2005 brought together 320 photographs. Sequenced in the order in which they were originally documented. Now, in the age of Instagram and nearly 50 years after Shore embarked on his cross country journey, this revised and expanded edition will bring this seminal work back into focus.
