This recent monograph is the most complete survey of photographer Stephen Shore’s work, from the early days at Warhol’s Factory to a variety of new techniques. Portraits of the banal and the landscapes of modern living make up Shore’s look at contemporary life and its details. Shore was one of the first to use colour in art photography, so the harvest golds and avocado greens of every day life were captured along with the mood. This book includes a time line of the artist’s work by Christy Lange, an interview with Shore by Michael Fried and a study by Joel Sternfeld.
