303 Gallery is pleased to announce our seventh solo exhibition by Stephen Shore, featuring works from his Topographies series.


Beginning in 2020, this body of photographs was shot using a drone, resulting in sharply detailed aerial views of rural and suburban landscapes. Topographies builds upon concepts Shore has examined in his large-format landscapes from the 1970's: pictures which uncover certain qualities intrinsic to the American vista. By employing a far-reaching, elevated perspective, Shore demonstrates how, from altitude, landforms are revealed, and conversely, how the built environment interacts with the land. In viewing these photographs, it becomes apparent that every detail of Shore’s pictures-- from edge to edge, whether near or far-- is as carefully considered and articulated as the next. 

Shore has persistently explored new possibilities within the photographic image. Since his early practice, he has incorporated new formats and technologies, utilizing innovations as a means to achieve his own ends. Shore's pictures seem straight forward at a glance but surprise with their ability to draw out the subtlest moments, distilling quiet sublimities from unassuming subjects.

A major retrospective of Stephen Shore's career The Enduring Present is currently touring China, while his upcoming exhibition Vehicular & Vernacular at Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris, opens June 1st. Past solo exhibitions include The Museum Of Modern Art, New York (2017); C/O, Berlin (2016); Fundación MAPFRE, Madrid (2014); Aspen Art Museum (2011); South African National Galley, Cape Town (2008);  The International Center for Photography, New York (2007); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2005); and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York (2005). His work is included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art, Sprengel Museum, and The Library of Congress. Since 1982, he has been the director of the Photography Program at Bard College in New York’s Hudson Valley.
