Along with his large-format camera, during the cross-country journeys that produced his luminous new vision of the American landscape – ‘Uncommon Places’ – Shore also brought a 35mm Leica.

The images made with it, on luminous colour slide film, are intimate, spontaneous and personal, while retaining Shore’s studied formal sensitivity.

The vocabulary is familiar: highways and homes, phone boxes, fast food and sun-strewn parking lots. But the alternative format unmistakably re-envisions these subjects through distinct experiments with composition, attitude, and colour. It’s like hearing a very famous piece of music played in a new key.
