That '70s Show

Photo sight gags and time-capsule images. That's the essence of Stephen Shore's show at 303 Gallery, which displays more than 50 color photographs from the early '70s. These small images (most are 5"x7") capture really bad wallpaper, ironic highway sights, and a lot of flat-looking food. Most of these photos--except for the portraits--have held up over the past 30 years, and those that don't are interesting for their flashback quality. Humorous and nostalgic. (Images via 303 Gallery.)
