"Between 1973 and 1979 I made a series of trips across North America, photographing with a view camera. These were essentially journeys of exploration: exploring the changing culture of America and exploring how a photograph renders the segment of time and space in its scope. I chose a view camera because it describes the world with unparalleled precision; because the necessarily slow, deliberate working method it requires leads to conscious decision making; and because it's the photographic means of communicating what the world looks like in a state heightened awareness. In conceiving the original book Uncommon Places, published by Aperture in 1982, the challenge was to represent the series - which is comprised of hundreds of images produced over a decade - with a limited selection of 49 plates... In revisiting this work in book form aver twenty years later, I've had the opportunity to present a new selection that more accurately reflects the breadth of the project... The book you've now holding in your hands amounts to what might be called the photographic equivalent of a director's cut". Stephen Shore, 2003. Ref LPB0337
