About Pet Pictures
In Pet Pictures, Stephen Shore presents a series of photographs he has made over the years of his pets - barnyard and domestic alike. So, Shore shares a loving record of life on his family farm. The book reaches its crescendo with an original signed photograph of Pete the dog who, when wearing his bandana, has been sometimes confused for a boy scout. This is a collection of pet portraits taken by Shore (with the exception of one taken by Ginger Shore) and includes a lifetime of animal companions from dogs, cats, chickens as well as goats. The images range from sentimental portraits to cute snapshots and also give a small insight into Shore's personal life. - from photo-eye's New Arrivals Newsletter
