Stephen Shore: ‘People Would Chase Me Off Their Lawns with My Leica’ –The Guardian

In the early 1970s, Stephen Shore made a series of large-format photographs of main streets in the US. […] Did he draw much attention in his safari suit, lugging an old-fashioned plate camera on a tripod? “Strangely, no,” he says. “No one seemed to care at all that I was standing there, maybe six feet away, waiting for the light to change so I could photograph them. Often, they were more concerned when I was wandering about with the Leica. People would often chase me off their lawns and sidewalks.”
