Biographical Landscape: The Photography of Stephen Shore, 1969–1979

 

February 22–May 18, 2008

 

see current exhibition gallery see upcoming exhibitions see symposium details  

Stephen Shore’s documentary-style photographs color the familiar and the everyday with a personalized and almost diaristic aesthetic, imbuing the banal with a striking sense of humanity. This exhibition includes Shore’s celebrated series Uncommon Places, documenting America of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The American vernacular emerges through Shore’s images of parking lots, apartment buildings, crossroads, motel rooms, and restaurants in large cities and desolate byways. In total, the exhibition showcases more than 150 color-infused images taken by one of the most influential American photographers (at age 23, Shore had a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, only the second living photographer to do so). Aperture, a not-for-profit organization devoted to photography and the visual arts, has organized this traveling exhibition and produced the accompanying publications.
