About US-american photographer Stephen SHORE (b.1947 in New York City)

Stephen SHORE is one of the most important contemporary photographers, whose first important place was Andy Warhol's 'Factory', a meeting place for many avant-garde artists of the 1960s and 70s, which he documented in B&W. In the 1970s he made many trips around the USA documenting typical American views. With these photographs, he became one of the American pioneers of color photography, along with William EGGLESTON and Ernst HAAS. Shortly before his 24th birthday, he was the first living photographer to have a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Through his acquaintance with Bernd BECHER, Stephen SHORE became known in Germany and beyond, and in 1977 he participated in 'Documenta 6'. In 2010 he received the Culture Award of the German Society for Photography (DGPh), coinciding with the opening of the exhibition 'Der Rote Bulli. Stephen Shore and the New die Neue Düsseldorf Photography'.
