And I’m ready for it! Here are some stuff that I’ve enjoyed looking at recently:
- Stephen Shore. I’ve been looking at his 1982 book Uncommon Places. He wanders through the U.S. for several years with an 8×10 view camera and this book is the outcome. The photos are quintessential America. Most of them are seemingly simple and unimaginative, but they are actually complex and deliberate.
- Emily Shur. She’s known for her magazine work, but I think that her personal projects are even more amazing. I really like her Wild Wild Life series. It definitely has that Shore-esque feel to it.
- Pieter Hugo. Man this guy knows how to take a photo. I think his best project is The Hyena & Other Men. There is so much emotion in every photo and the colors are amazing.
