This publication includes works not published in Aperture's "Uncommon Places: The Complete Works." From the interview with Stephen Shore by Bernd and Hilla Becher, published in the June 2002 issue of Art in America: "It was obvious that color had to come. We had acquired a small series in color by Stephen Shore [bought or exchanged] and the photographs hung there [in the Düsseldorf Academy of Art], for all our visitors to see. That had a certain influence." From the publisher: "This new monograph contains unpublished work from Shore's original ground-breaking body of work, Uncommon Places. Uncommon Places 50 Unpublished Photographs contains passages from his The Nature of Photographs, the enlightening combination of images and words makes Uncommon Places 50 Unpublished Photographs one of the most important books of the year."
