I don't remember who told me, months & months ago, that I should look at Stephen Shore, but whoever it was: Thank you!!! (Now that I finally got around to following up.... You should be, um, impressed at how long I keep little tiny scraps of notes floating around my desk.) Since I am an admitted photo newbie (& how!), I'm not embarrassed to say I had never heard of Shore & am seeing his work from the 70s as a kind of revelation. Lucky for me, Aperture Foundation just (re)published a big luscious book of this good stuff. Now you know what I spent money on this week.
