Stephen Shore

Stephen Shore is the master of cool. What makes his photography amazing is that he can take everyday, often ugly and overlooked objects and turn them into art. For his book American Surfaces, Shore took a road trip across America and created a photographic diary of the time. He took pictures of all the little mundane details: what meals he ate, hotel beds, and suburban town streets. While this could be boring under any other photographer’s hands, his revolutionary use of color and unusual compositions make them some of the most interesting photos we’ve seen. His snapshots and visual diaries of the art in everyday life remind us of how people are using Instagram today. Shore has always been, and will continue to be ahead of the game. Take a look through some of our favorite Shore photos, pick up some tips, and fall in love with this strangely beautiful world.
