|STEPHEN SHORE||A LANDMARK PUBLICATION|
|Stephen Shore took his first photographs as a child and by the age of 14, three of his photographs were acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. As a teenager he spent time in Andy Warhol’s Factory photographing the artist and his entourage. In 1971 Shore became the first living photographer to have a one-person show at the MetropolitanMuseum of Art. His photographs have since been included in numerous shows, including the ‘American Surfaces’ exhibition (Cologne and Frankfurt, 1999) and the Tate Modern’s successful 2003 ‘Cruel and Tender’ exhibition. Shore is a pioneering and highly influential photographer; he is also an important teacher and is Director of the Photography Program at Bard College, New York.||
Amanda Renshaw, Phaidon Editorial Director talks about The Book of Books.
'This book embraces brand new technology and brand new ways of making a book. We at Phaidon have made a true work of art in a pioneering way with one of the most important and influential photographers in the world.
I really do believe that this is a one off in book publishing and the way that it’s made and the way that this work is presented will change the way that books are made in the future. It is not only a landmark but also a benchmark against which other books will be measured.’
