Artist Stephen Shore often finds himself inspired by ordinary subjects, such as a grilled cheese sandwich. He discusses how his photographic practice makes him observe the world with heightened attention. Reflecting on his series American Surfaces (1972-2005) and Uncommon Places (1987-2003), he describes his goal of composing photographs in a way that "feels like seeing."
