View Full Version : Stephen Shore Interview
Someone on another photo website pointed me towards this interview with Stephen Shore. Perhaps you've read it already - I found it pretty interesting and took away a few fresh perspectives:
Enjoy the read...
I liked the anecdote about the policeman who asked Shore if he wanted the illegally parked car left in the composition

Thanks for this link. I'm still reading it, and already it's giving me new perspectives to consider. And, it really has nothing to do with Shore's photographs, as i'm not really even that familiar with him.....
Shore states: “... my tendency is, if I see something interesting, to not take a picture of it, but to take a picture of something else and have that in it so that you can move your attention around, like this is a little world that you can examine, and for those kinds of pictures it simply makes more sense for everything to be sharp."
What a refreshing explanation of composition and DOF!
Like the cop's wife, I find Shore's color work a bit dull at first sight, then very interesting second time around ... same with Eggleston and Meyerowitz.
Thinking about it, are there any others over all the pre-digital years?? I can't think of any – the so-called creative world seems limited almost entirely to black and white.
