Stephen Shore on How to See

Stephen Shore on How to See

Photographer Stephen Shore has long been a believer in breaking with visual conventions.

Throughout his decades-spanning career, Shore has left an indelible mark on photography and fine art. To celebrate his exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern art, Shore takes you on a guided tour through the Met, highlighting some of the thinking behind his most important work.

In one particular portion of the Met exhibit, he walks through a recreation of his “American Surfaces” show and discusses how, at random moments, he would force himself to become “aware of his field of vision” to help him “take pictures that felt like seeing.”
