Master of Photography
Photo London is delighted to announce US photographer Stephen Shore as its Master of Photography for 2019. Shore’s photographs explore and document the ordinary scenes of everyday life, transforming seemingly mundane scenarios and objects into subjects of thoughtful consideration. Known for his pioneering use of colour photography and early experimentation with new technologies, Shore’s work has been widely published and exhibited for the past 45 years, including a recent solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The Photo London Master of Photography award is given annually to a leading contemporary photographer who is the subject of a special exhibition at the fair. As part of Photo London’s 2019 Public Programme, Shore will present a new body of work, which will be shown for the first time in the UK. He will also be showing a series from 1969 titled ‘Los Angeles’, which features 60 small photographs taken throughout one day in 1969 in LA. The exhibition is produced in association with Sprüth Magers and 303 Gallery. To accompany the exhibition at Photo London, Shore will be speaking as part of the acclaimed Photo London Talks Programme on Thursday the 16 May. The full Talks Programme – which is once again curated by the author and curator William A Ewing – will be announced in April, with speakers already confirmed including Martin Parr, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Susan Meiselas, Ed Templeton and Deanna Templeton, and Vanessa Winship.
