Episode No. 132 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artist Stephen Shore.
This week Phaidon published Shore’s latest book, “From Galilee to the Negev,” which includes pictures Shore has taken of Israel and the West bank from 1994 to 2011. The book also features essays about individual pictures by writers such as Yossi Klein Halevi, Jane Kramer, Steve Sabella and Eyal Weizman. It’s available from Amazon for $67, $33 off the cover price.
Shore is one of America’s most honored photographers. His books “American Surfaces” and “Uncommon Places” are two of the most influential books in American photography. In 1971 he was the first living photographer to have an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and he was included in the Tate Modern’s first exhibition of photography in 2003. On Wednesday, May 21 you can hear more from Shore when he talks with Met photo curator Jeff Rosenheim at the International Center of Photography.
You can see more Shores at the artist’s website.
