Olaf Breuning’s Faces plays against the ubiquitous language of today’s social media photography, creating an extensive cast of characters that emerge out of mundane domestic scenes: making breakfast, dinner leftovers, frost collecting on a window pane, taking out the garbage, a puddle of rain. Each page, an anthropomorphic face that both regards and projects the viewer, is an expression of everyday chaos and kismet – as long as we’re willing to take a look.
Combining a substantial 496 pages of photographs with a compact 7x7 inch square format, Faces will be released in the fall of 2019 by Los Angeles based publisher Silent Sound in a limited first edition run of 1000 copies, each book featuring it’s own unique cover. The playful design invites an organic and unpredictable re-arrangement of the work in essentially endless combinations by the viewer.

Stephen Shore Selected Works: 1973-1981
Save $ 0.00
tephen Shore’sUncommon Placesis indisputably a canonic body of work—a touchstone for those interested in photography and the American landscape. Remarkably, despite having been the focus of numerous shows and books, including the eponymous 1982 Aperture classic (expanded and reissued several times), this series of photographs has yet to be explored in its entirety. Over the past five years, Shore has scanned hundreds of negatives shot between 1973 and 1981. In this volume, Aperture has invited an international group of fifteen photographers, curators, authors, and cultural figures to select ten images apiece from this rarely seen cache of images. Each portfolio offers an idiosyncratic and revealing commentary on why this body of work continues to astound; how it has impacted the work of new generations of photography and the medium at large; and proposes new insight on Shore’s unique vision of America as transmuted in this totemic series.
Stephen Shorehas had a significant influence on more than one generation of artists and photographers. He is the director of the photography program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. A major retrospective of Shore’s work is planned to take place at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 2017.
