Stephen Shore Stereographs New York 1974 ~ RARE 1/400.
Super rare. I could only find one other listing on the internet at $1k. Because of the condition I am selling this at half that price. The box is in very good condition as is the viewfinder. However the discs show signs of wear and have some visible dust and scratches oh the photos. Still this is a really unique piece for any fan of Stephen Shore.
Inside the box is also a card numbered hand signed by Stephen Shore. This is #156/400.

In 1974, Stephen Shore purchased a Stereo Realist— a camera that created stereographic color transparencies, resulting in images that could be viewed in 3-D. Similar to nineteenth-century experimentation in stereo cards and the recently popularized View-Master toys, these images offer a simulacrum of three-dimensional space via the two-dimensional image. The thirty images presented exclusively in this limited-edition stereograph are the result of Shore’s engagement with the puzzle of how to most effectively translate the real world into a successful “3-D” image given the particulars of the technology. “I was interested in seeking out situations in which the camera was doing something different from how our eyes see things: reflections, windows, a shadow on a chain-link fence, a rug that seems to float off the ground — each scenario created this amazing sense of space.” Fifteen of the resulting images were shown in a 1975 exhibition at Light Gallery. This set of thirty images has only been seen publicly once before, at Shore’s 2017–18 MoMA survey.
