Did you know?

Shore’s photographic career began at age 14 when three of his photographs were purchased by the Museum of Modern Art, New York.


This picture, according to Shore, is both a formal exploration of “how to convert the experience of a complex three-dimensional space into a flat, bounded medium” and a “cultural exploration” of the boundary between a New England industrial town and the countryside that surrounds it.
