Stephen Shore was one of the first photographers to pursue the ridiculous idea that color photography could be fine art. Before he and William Eggleston arrived on the scene, fine art photography was strictly black and white, and pretty boring too. It was mostly just landscapes, or pictures of fruits and vegetables, or the occasional nude person. Who wants to look at desaturated pictures of vegetables? Not me!
Uncommon Places is basically a visual road trip through America in the 70s.
Stephen Shore deserves a Grammy.
