Stephen Shore
Stampeder Motel, Ontario, Oregon, July 19, 1973

I was delighted to see a Stephen Shore article in this months BJP. What pleased me most is that they have not used the usual images chosen to represent SS opting instead for lesser known images, which are of course just as impressive. A nice move there I have to say.
Shore's work, in particular American Surfaces and Uncommon Places, probably carries more gravitas now than it did in the 70's. This is one photographer I always come back to time and time again.
