Jackson, Wyoming by Stephen Shore (1979)

The photograph titled “Jackson, Wyoming” was captured by artist Stephen Shore on September 2, 1979. In the image, a serene, wilderness camping scene unfolds. Nestled amidst lush greenery and coniferous trees, two tents can be seen pitched in a clearing. The larger tent is a soft yellow color, contrasting with the greener, smaller one. The natural light of the sun filters through the trees, illuminating the campsite and lending a bright, vibrant quality to the vegetation around. Camping gear and supplies are casually scattered about the site, suggesting recent or ongoing use. The undisturbed setting and absence of people in the frame evoke a sense of tranquility and a disconnect from the bustle of urban life, capturing the essence of an outdoor adventure in the heart of nature.
