Synopsis: Stephen Shore has had a significant influence on multiple generations of artists and photographers. Even for the youngest photographers working today, his work remains an ongoing and indisputable reference point. Stephen Shore: Survey includes over 250 images that span Shore's impressive and productive career. The images range from 1969 to 2013, with series such as Early Works, Amarillo, New York City, American Surfaces and Uncommon Places, among others. Stephen Shore: Survey elucidates Shore's contributions, as well as the historiographical interpretations of his work that have influenced photographic culture over the past four decades. The narrative of the catalogue is conceptualized around three particularly revealing aspects of Shore's work, including his analysis of photographic and visual language, his topographical approach to the contemporary landscape and his significant use of color within a photographic context. The images are accompanied by an interview between David Campany and Shore, as well as texts by Sandra S. Phillips, Marta Dahó and Horacio Fernández. Published for his first ever retrospective exhibition, this essential catalogue also features a complete bibliography and chronology. Stephen Shore (born 1947) had his work purchased by Edward Steichen for The Museum of Modern Art, New York, at age 14. At 17, Shore was a regular at Andy Warhol's Factory, producing an important photographic document of the scene, and in 1971, at the age of 24, he became the first living photographer since Alfred Stieglitz to have a solo show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He has had numerous one-man shows, including those at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester, New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and the Art Institute of Chicago. Since 1982, he has been director of the photography program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he is the Susan Weber Professor in the Arts.
