American Surfaces

Chinese Edition of American Surfaces Released


《美国表象》由斯蒂芬·肖尔于1972至1973年拍摄的一系列创新照片组成,其中大部分都未经发表。这个项目将纪实摄影推向了新高度。当它首次在纽约的光线画廊(Light Gallery)展出时,肖尔穿越美国旅行的这份视觉日记让评论家们摸不着头脑。他展示的几百张彩色照片,只是在新泽西州柯达冲印店里冲洗出来的,这与当时被接纳为艺术摄影的正规黑白照片截然不同。

尽管评论并不看好这一展览,但纽约大都会艺术博物馆时任摄影策展人的韦斯顿·内夫(Weston Naef)依然买下了所有展品,这220幅照片至今仍留在大都会博物馆。自此之后,《美国表象》成了对我们的快速生活及以消费为导向的世界进行记录的基准,这一作品延续了沃克·埃文斯和罗伯特·弗兰克穿越美国的体验,并持续影响着当今的摄影师。…

The photographer Stephen Shore has two little dogs that he walks every day, lead in one hand, camera in the other. The thing with dogs, he says, is that, as you walk them, you’re often looking down. “So I’m multitasking: walking my dogs and making art at the same time.”

Shore’s daily perambulations produce a ground-level view of the familiar and banal. Among the most arresting photographs on display in his forthcoming exhibition – the aptly named Details, at Somerset House, as Photo London’s 2019 Master of Photography – are a series of studies of the detritus that he came across while walking. In one, we see the root of a tree, broken asphalt, cigarette butts, a drinking straw and a single bright…
