Stephen Shore Artist Talk

In 1972 self-taught photographer Stephen Shore set out from his native New York City to Amarillo, Texas, on the first of what would become a decade’s worth of road trips across America. Shore’s trademark photographs of middle-American landscapes, interiors, and figures helped establish color photography as an accepted medium in the world of art. Shore’s work is in the SFMOMA and Pilara Foundation collections, and he is the recent recipient of a CCA Wattis Institute of Contemporary Art commission to document the United States in its current state of economic downturn.
