    I think it’s important that you distill this into three aspects. The first aspect is physical. It’s what the eyes do. The second aspect is cognitive. It is apprehending the image from the eyes. The third aspect is metacognitive. It is being aware of apprehending what one sees. It’s this last that’s of particular interest to me as a photographer. It’s been my experience that, when a photographer takes pictures when they’re seeing in a state of heightened awareness, they make subtle decisions that lead the resultant image to appear particularly vivid.

    New from Phaidon are two publications by Stephen Shore. Available now, A New York Minute is the first digital book from both the photographer and publisher. While referencing the traditional photobook, Shore engaged the unique multimedia format of the iBook by creating 16 moving images contained in a static frame, catching fragments of the nonstop bustle of New York or details easily lost in the relentless movement of the city. The “still photographs flowing in time,” as Shore calls them, give new dimension to his photographic vision while also connecting to his early film work.

    Vice Magazine – STEPHEN SHORE

    If Stephen Shore were known just for the iconic photos he shot as a teenager at Warhol’s original Silver Factory, he’d probably still get a place in the history of photography. But galvanized by a road trip from Manhattan to Amarillo, Texas, in 1972, Shore went on to pioneer the use of color in fine-art photography. Over the intervening years, his photos have also documented America and Americans in a way that presaged the straight-on deadpan vibe of much current image-making—this includes streetscapes and architecture shot to reveal them as abandoned film sets, and cryptic vérité portraits of people he meets.
