The image shown were taken from the Stephen Shore book ‘Uncommon Places’ published by Thames and Hudson in 2004 and includes 163 coloured photographs by the photographer.
The images show a journey Shore took across the U.S, and were taken over a span of 11 years and began July 3rd, 1973. For the project Shore used a 35mm Rollei which was perfect for the point and shoot method Shore wanted to use as he wanted to look at the world from a tourists perspective and so also got his images printed in the same way at a Kodak lab. He also chose this camera as it was uncomplicated and did not intrude with the travellers activities.
I chose these specific images by Shore as I liked the perspective they were taken from, the angle has not made it so cars are in the way of the frame, but add to it. I also thought that the colours were very interesting and the composition.
