Stephen Shore Uncommon places

Who is Stephen Shore?

Stephen Shore is an American photographer, who is one of the pioneering art photographers to work exclusively in color.

What is the purpose of this series

the purpose of this series was to shoe the American consumer culture that was starting to become very prominent in the 1980’s. In this series Shore wanted to explore the  form and structures within the American landscape, which made that landscape so quintessentially American.

What do I like about it?

I like that the spaces he photographs are bright and alive, and shows a unique perspective on an ordinary scene.

What can I use from it?

Shore uses a large aperture, which means there is a very narrow depth of field. This means that no one thing in the image is privileged and the images are slightly flat.
