Stephen Shore (b. 1947) is a true artistic innovator whose work has opened up new frontiers for contemporary photography. His photographs of everyday American scenes unveiled the exceptional beauty to be found in banality, at the same time laying the groundwork for contemporary photographic genres such as the diaristic snapshot and the monumentalized landscape. This monograph offers the first complete look at the artist's long and storied career, from his residency at Warhol's Factory to his experiments in conceptual photography, from his landmark series American Surfaces to his continued exploration of emerging techniques.
