Stephen Shore is very special to me.
- Like William Eggleston, he’s one great artist who “rediscovered” color photography when everybody was shooting in black & white.
- He uses light and sun (and therefore the shadows) like nobody else.
- He likes to take normal, “non interesting” places, like suburbs, streets, parkings – I am very touched by this approach.
- His book, Uncommon Places, is a marvel.
- Each photography is charged with a mood. You can almost breathe the air of it.
- He has his own way of photographing normal lands, cars, streets, people with so much… care that all these become fascinating, mesmeric.
I found 12 pictures for you (plus the front cover of his book). Stare at these.
Have a nice day!
