Description

Stephen Shore is one of the photographers who established colour photography as a legitimate medium of artistic expression. American Surfaces is one of the bodies of work which exemplifies why. A mix between Atget's Paris, which documents just about every facade, tree and street corner available, and Robert Frank's apparently casual, Americans' road trip, this, little published body of work, took documentary photography to a whole new level and opened up an entire range of possibilities to the next generation of photographers

Author Biography

At the age of 17, Stephen Shore (b.1947) was a regular at Andy Warhol's Factory. By the age of 23 he became the first living photographer to have a one-man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. An unrivalled pioneer in his field, his work has been exhibited in numerous museums worldwide and influenced generations of photographers. In 1982 he was appointed Director of the Photography Program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he is the Susan Weber Soros Professor in the Arts.
