Photos by Stephen Shore

If you enjoy photography, particularly documentary photos with a twist, check out this New York Times article on a new show of Stephen Shore's images at the International Center of Photography.

It's hard to explain the appeal of his photographs . . . I just know that when first encountering them several years ago, I was hooked. Perhaps it's the way in which many of his photos - particularly those taken on several cross-country drives in the 1970s - reveal the starkly mundane in American life. Indeed, he often recorded the everyday details that most of us miss. Enjoy!

Interesting. What a cool way to live life, traveling around and photographing what he saw. The seventies photos captured a "mood" that I could actually recall feeling.
Are you planning to attend the exhibit?
