Stephen Shore captures the essence of the American landscape by framing particular, ordinary elements so that they reveal the universal and the extraordinary. The viewpoint of his camera is never special; it is that of our own absentminded eyes as we wander through familiar places doing ordinary things – waiting for a bus or driving on an errand. In Shore’s photographs we discover the mislaid images that we ignored because of their very familiarity or rejected because of their banality. Our conscious minds seek more interesting or less objectionable scenes – Alpine peaks or Italian piazzas; in Shore’s art we confront what we usually do not notice, streets and façades at once well-known and remote, half-remembered and half-forgotten.
