Photographer: Stephen Shore

Uncommon Places: The Complete Works
Stephen Shore made several road trips across America during the 1970's, stopping off along the way to photograph ordinary, everyday subjects such as random cityscapes, small town storefronts, rural homes and motel interiors. The resulting photos are nothing short of striking (especially due to their supersaturated color) and provide a quintessential snapshot of the American landscape. Check catalog for availability.

Shore's work from this period is currently on display at Marquette University's Haggerty Museum of Art. The exhibition runs through September 28th and admission is free.
