Artist Interview



Shore has become known as a pioneer of colour photography. He took his first photographs as a child and three of his pictures were acquired by the Museum of Modern Art, New York when he was only 14. As a teenager, he hung out at Andy Warhol’s Factory, photographing the artist and his entourage. During the 1970s, Shore began to travel across the United States, documenting the street corners, diners, gas stations and motels of ordinary America.
