The story of how American photographer Stephen Shore, self-taught, at the mere of 14, presented his work to the curator of photography at the time at MoMA is one that's been told numerous times over the years. The rest is what they would call history and by the age of 21, Shore became the second living photgrapher to have a solo show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shore's work has since been exhibited pretty much at every renowned institutions there is and is often credited for being one of the champions of color photography. Although working mostly outside of the U.S in recent years, Shore is still most noted for his everyday scenes from the U.S. It's evocative and makes for very compelling viewing.
