Born in 1947, the American photographer Stephen Shore was developing film for his parents when he was in first grade; by the time he was fourteen, Edward Steichen had bought several of his pictures for MOMA. In lieu of high school, in the mid-sixties he took pictures at Warhol’s Factory. In the subsequent decades, Shore took his camera out on the road, to sites ranging from Texas, Montana, and Mexico to Galilee and Ukraine. (This being 2017, he has spent the past few years posting on Instagram.) MOMA mounts his largest show in New York in a decade. (Opens Nov. 19.)
