stephen shore. The quirkiness that is presented in this image is amazing. I'm instantly intrigued by whats in the rest of the house beyond this point. Shore is very good at doing this. I want to be able to shoot images that make the audience want my, just like Shore does.
Stephen Shore, American (1947-present), deadpan images of banal scenes & bjects in the United States, and for his pioneering use of color in art photography. Shore’s work has been associated with late 70′s early 80′s societal shift to a more personal individual centric view of human experience. His eye became the means to reflect the cultural landscape.
