Survivors in Ukraine

Phaidon
$69.95

Stephen Shores’s book Survivors Ukraine traces a bloodline that the Third Reich once hoped to erase. Shore’s paternal grandfather emigrated from Ukraine to the US in the late nineteenth century. While he had always been aware of his ancestry, it was Stephen’s wife, Ginger Shore, who suggested he look into the lives of Jewish Holocaust survivors still living in that country. “She understood that my work needed to move into a more personal sphere,” the great fine-art photographer explains in his new book.

We should thank Mrs. Shore for her insight, as Stephen’s new collection of work retains the vivid ebullience and masterful composition of his early pictures, while also displaying a remarkably well-calibrated narrative sense and lightness of touch that, in some senses seems quite new. Survivors in Ukraine is a remarkably assured work by an artist working at the pinnacle of his abilities.
