View: 9393Stephen 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. This book copublished with Fundación MAPFRE in conjuncƠtion with the first-ever retrospective exhibition, 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. Both the exhibition and the narrative of the catalogue are 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.00Exhibition: Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid, Spain (17.9.-23.11.2014).

View: 1596One of the most influential photographers of our time, Stephen Shore has often been categorized as one of a group of artists of the 1970s who captured American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous color images. While this is true, it is only part of the story: Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large format in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color film before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and, in the 2000s, taking up the opportunities offered by digital photography, digital printing and social media. Published to accompany the first comprehensive survey of Stephen Shore's work in the US, this catalog reflects the full range of his contribution, including the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager (and sold to The Museum of Modern Art); his photographs of the scene at Andy Warhol's Factory, in New York; the color images he made during cross-country road trips in the 1970s; his recent explorations of Israel, the West Bank and Ukraine; and his current work on digital platforms, including Instagram.

View: 4326Die Faszination fur das Meer hat die Menschheit bereits vor mehr als 5000 Jahren dazu bewogen, sich kunstliche Miniaturformen in Form von offentlichen Badern zu erschaffen, um darin vornehmlich Ritualbader abzuhalten. HEutzutage front man dem kuhlen Nass langst auch im Privathaushalt und ohne religiosen Hintergrund: Swimming Pools avancierten schnell zu einem Statussymbol und folgten unterschiedlichsten Trends. SIe laden zum Freizeitsport, zur Entspannung und schlichtweg zum Vergnugen ein. KEin Wunder, dass gerade Filmemacher und Fotografen das Motiv des Swimmingpools fur sich entdeckt haben. LAssen sich hier doch nicht nur Wasser- und Lichtreflexe auf einzigartige Weise einfangen, auch die Menschen, die den Pool "beleben" und sich mit der kunstlich erschaffenen Natur umgeben, erzeugen ganz bewegende Momentaufnahmen, die dieser Fotoband auf mehr als 200 Abbildungen bereithalt.
