This photograph, titled “El Paso Street, El Paso, Texas,” was taken by the artist Stephen Shore on July 5, 1975. The image presents a sunny day on a city street in El Paso, Texas.

The photograph displays a clear, bright day on an urban street corner. On the right side, a solitary figure walks away from the viewer, heading towards a crosswalk. To the left, a bare tree and a public phone booth frame the scene. Prominently featured are vintage signage and storefronts, suggesting a glimpse into the commercial life of the time. The architecture is indicative of the period, with a mix of mid-20th-century styles visible in the buildings that line the street.
