Stephen Shore

Stephen Shore (New York, 1947) is an American photographer known for his images of banal scenes and objects in the United States. Also, he is known for his pioneering use of colour in art photography.

Among other titles, his books include Uncommon Places, Steel town, American Surfaces or Transparencies.

He became the first living photographer to be exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City back in 1971, where he did a solo show of black and white photographs. Later, in 1976he would have a solo exhibition of colour photographs.

Further, he has regularly used his work as a form of visual diary, communicating his own experiences through his photographs. Shore's photographic choices suggest emotional states to the audience, often drawing power through the ways in which light and composition evoke feelings that the viewer cannot name.
