This week I wanted to share a couple more photographers whom I admire. I love black and white photography, but have been pushing myself to do more color photography and these artists have created some extremely amazing color images. The first is Stephen Shore who is widely known for taking photos of mundane, everyday things. He is also known for the photos he takes of his meals. When I am out to dinner at a restaurant, at a friend’s house, or on vacation I find myself taking snapshots of my meals. My recent favorite was at Panini Pete’s in Fairhope, Alabama. I wish I could hop in my car and go there now! I did not find a dedicated website for Stephen Shore, but his work can be found by Googling his name or on Wikipedia.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the work of Julie Blackmon. She photographs everyday happenings with much more of a twist. While I love her black and white work, I fall in love with her color images every time I look at them. Blackmon’s Domestic Vacation series is a hoot! Check her out at www.julieblackmon.com.
