With essays, photographs, stories, and excerpts that draw on Shore's decades of teaching, this is an essential handbook for anyone interested in learning more about mastering one's craft and the distinct threads that come together to inform a creative voice. As much as offering meditation on the influences of a single artist, Modern Instances proposes a new way of thinking about the world around us, in which even the smallest moment can become a source of boundless inspiration -- if only we pay attention."--Publisher description.
