Discover what made the future: Stephen Shore / Uncommon Places

Shore is an American photographer known for his images of banal scenes and objects in the United States, and for his pioneering use of color in art photography. At a time when ‘art photography’ was predominantly black and white, Shore embarked on a series of road trips across the United States photographing the streets and towns in color, first using a 35mm hand-held camera and finally settling on the square  8×10 inch format. The resulting format and colour treatment has had a profound influence on popular use of filters and format on the likes of Instagram.
