“All photographs are based on the matrix of Stephen Shores legendary 'A Road Trip Journal'. Volker Renner tried to redo all the photographs Shore did on his trip in 1973.
Renner kept the information Shore made and changed them if the name had changed within time.
People and places Renner could not find and could not photograph are left blank in the layout. The route varies in some places, due to the fact that Shore didn't take pictures the whole journey. 37 years later Volker Renner followed his photographs like a pilgrimage - or like a tourist who follows his attractions.
His photographs as Renners attraction, in search of Shores tracks, his motives and movements within a city and on the road.”
Following Stephen Shore’s American photography trips 37 years later, the result is a series of full-colour shots of sights that can only be found in the US; road signs, diners, craftsman houses and other Americana, with a detailed map showing the plotted journey, hard cover, 30,5 x 24,5 cm, 104 pages, Hamburg 2012
