STEPHEN SHORE – WINSLOW ARIZONA (BOX)
Winslow Arizona (BOX)
Publisher: IMA, 2014
Photographer Stephen Shore’s extensive travels across the United States, document the banal scenes and objects he encounters along the way. This series was made on a single day in 2013, when Shore revisited a small Arizona town he had first seen in 1972. As part of Doug Aitken’s Station to Station project, in which invited artists, writers, performers and filmmakers rode a train from New York to California, stopping at various points to stage “happenings”, Shore decided to photograph Winslow and make a slideshow at the next stop; a visual improvisation. His portrait of the sun-baked town is bleak, with boarded-up buildings, abandoned objects and lifeless streets.
