      Later that year, Shore, then 23 years old, became the first living photographer to have a one-man show at the Met. He then set off on a road trip, due south through the Carolinas and then across the Deep South to Texas and New Mexico. As a new generation of artists expands on the projects of the New Topographic and New Color photographers of the seventies--Thomas Struth whose first book was titled Unconscious PlacesAndreas Gursky and Catherine Opie among them--Uncommon Places: The Complete Works provides a timely opportunity to reexamine the diverse implications of Shore's project and offers a fundamental primer for the last 30 years of large-format color photography. Approaching his subjects with cool objectivity, Shore retains precise systems of gestures in composition and light through which a hotel bedroom or a building on a side street assumes both an archetypal aura and an ambiguously personal importance. A small departure from American Surfaces, Uncommon Places condensed vast amounts of pictorial information into every frame, meaning that Shore no longer needed to explicitly articulate his photographs in a contextual manner.

      Later that year, Shore, then 23 years old, became the first living photographer to have a one-man show at the Met. And he used a flash constantly, not necessarily as an aid to vision but as a reminder, in the glare reflected back from glass surfaces, that he was there pointing the camera. I was creating a little world that a viewer can move their attention through without directing it. Bring a camera.

      Szarkowski also agreed to meet Shore, and the two struck up a friendship. The shows are also reminders, however, that before Shore adopted the large-format camera, he was making visual diaries in which he took a snapshot of every meal he ate, person he met, and bed he slept in. It is a synthetic process. Electricity tends to follow our roadways, just like documentary photographers. Approaching his subjects with cool objectivity, Shore retains precise systems of gestures in composition and light through which a hotel bedroom or a building on a side street assumes both an archetypal aura and an ambiguously personal importance.
