"Numbed by Instagram? Might we suggest a flick through this coffee-table tome as a welcome distraction... His photographs sing of freedom and come with a side serving of a seemingly utopian Americana past - think white picket fences and short stack pancakes. Sometimes all it takes is a picture of a shiny muscle car outside a Texaco gas station." -The Sunday Times STYLE"A chronicler of ordinary life in the 70s."-The Observer New Review"Shore has now added yet more work to this updated volume... seminal."-Robb Report"In Shore's world, the very act of photographing an object makes that object a point of interest, and within that point of interest lies an inherent beauty."-Amateur Photographer
