Stephen Shore Biography

Stephen Shore’s color photographs were first exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in 1971 when he was just 24 years old. In 1982 he published his groundbreaking book, Uncommon Places (Aperture). American Surfaces (Schirmer/Mosel) was first published in 1999. His acclaimed writings on The Nature of Photographs illuminate the many ways photographs impact on our perception. Shore's trademark photographs of middle-American landscapes, interiors, and figures helped establish color photography as an accepted medium in the world of art. Among his many awards, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1975, and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships in 1974 and 1979. Since 1982, he has been the Susan Weber Soros Professor in the Arts and director of the photography program at Bard College. His work has been exhibited at museums and galleries all over the world.
