Stephen Shore's work has been widely published and exhibited for the past 35 years. He was the second living photographer to have a one-man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. He has also had one-man shows at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; the George Eastman House, Rochester; the Kunsthalle, Dusseldorf; Jeu de Paume, Paris; and the International Center of Photography, New York and has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. His series of exhibitions at Light Gallery in New York in the early 1970's sparked interest in color photography and lead the rebirth of the use of the view camera for documentary work. The most recent books of his work are Uncommon Places: The Complete Work (Aperture), American Surfaces (Phaidon), Witness No. 1 (JGS/Nazraeli), and Stephen Shore (Phaidon). The Nature of Photographs, a text Shore wrote about how photographs function visually, was published in 2007 by Phaidon. Since 1982 he has been the director of the photography program at Bard College where he is the Susan Weber Soros Professor in the Arts. He is represented by 303 Gallery in New York City and Sprüth Magers in London, Cologne, and Munich.
