Today, we are proud to select @stephen.shore with this image untitled. If you’re not familiar with Stephen Shore then allow me to explain. He is a renowned photographer from America, having participated in several photography movements in the last century, such as New Topographics. He has long paid attention to banal, ordinary, and unnoticed aspects of life, which can also be called snapshot aesthetic. His iconic series are American Surfaces and Uncommon Places. He has been shooting works with his iPhone and posting them on Instagram since 2014, and successfully brought Instagram photos to exhibitions in MoMA and 303 Gallery. Instagram, in his eyes, is a platform for “visual jotting”, or daily practice. What can be seen every day is isolated from its obvious context, and the intricacies beneath are what the photographer is keen on. I previously reviewed his book Steel Town from Mack Books and you can read that here.
