lawdog: Those are hands down some of the most boring, pedestrian photographs I have ever seen. Reminds me of the artist who puts up a blank canvas and everyone stands around ooh and aah-ing over the esoteric statement about the emptiness our our collective existence.
You definitely don't know much about art, history of art, etc. Stephen Shore was the first fine art color photographer.For you to have an idea:At age fourteen, he had his work purchased by the Moma, NY. At seventeen, Shore was a regular at Andy Warhol factory, producing an important photographic document of the scene, and in 1971 at the age of 23, he became the first living photographer to have a one-man show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY.
