American Surfaces+

Untitled was commissioned by Phaidon to create a photo album featuring the early work of highly acclaimed photographer Stephen Shore. American Surfaces documents Stephen’s road trip across America and serves as an informal visual diary of meals he ate, the people he met, the motel rooms he slept in and the towns he passed through. At our first meeting, Stephen unpacked thousands of original prints, still contained in their original distinctive Kodak sleeves. We used this as our inspiration when designing the oversized sleeve that the book was sold in.
