FIRST PLACE ©Garrett Grove, Joe, on his way to North Dakota. Pomeroy, WA, USA. 2016

Think this is such an amazing photograph.  It reminds me of images from the Farm Security Administration like Dorthea Lange and Walker Evans.  The light and tonality is fantastic and I enjoy the confusion it creates around the theme of a road trip.  Is this man and his dog on a  road trip?  Do they live like this? What is all that stuff in the car and why is it strewn about?” – Shawn Bush

Many thanks to our stellar juror, Shawn Bush, whose own project, Golden State, lives in the Road Trip realm. Shawn also recently took his own road trip from Rhode Island to Wyoming where he will begin teaching this fall. We had so many fantastic submissions and it was a treat to go through all your offerings.

We wish you the best summer, on and off the road, and are thrilled to present The 2018 Road Trip Exhibition!

“This is simply a beautiful photograph.  Again, I enjoy a different take on the theme of a road trip.  For me, road trips are as much about passing as they are about existing in destination(s).  This photo makes me think about temporal permanence in relation to a journey.” – Shawn Bush

sand encroachment on the Umm Al Zomool Road, UAE - the Umm Al Zomool Road runs from Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates along the borders with Oman and Saudi Arabia in the middle of the Empty Quarter Desert. No services are available. - I was interested by the encroachment of the sand on the road as remembering the futility of the struggle with Nature.

Focusing on habitual representations controlled by Western structures and institutions, Bush’s photographs challenge the systems that define identity and merit in contemporary America. Bush has been shown in galleries in Chicago, Denver, Boston, San Francisco and Athens, Greece. His debut artist book The Process of Meaning and Worth is the recipient of the Manifest Gold Book award and is included in the Museum of Contemporary Photography’s permanent collection.
