This exhibit explore the road, in their words, “as an iconic theme that runs in some of the best-and-well-known American photographers work such as Stephen Shore, Ed Ruscha, Alec Soth, and many others from both inside and outside the United States. Photographers have traveled these vast landscapes and across thousands of miles to document this country and all that surrounds the road; the landscape, the gas stations, the motels, the diners, the people, and the culture.”
