"Out on the road. I'm not Willy Nelson...I'm Tom Joad" ~ Loudon Wainwright III
1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition ON THE ROAD: The Ever-Present Presence of the Automobile... More and more, the automobile surrounds us. So ubiquitous they often go unseen by the mind's eye. Our constant companions, they share the ups and downs of the human experience with us. Sometimes trusted friend, sometimes fatal foe, but always almost obsessively by our side. This time 1650 welcomes your insights on the role of the automobile as symbiotic sidekick to humankind. Photographic greats such as Stephen Shore, William Eggleston, Alfred Steiglitz and Elliot Erwitt have all documented the connection between man and his 4 wheeled machine, the inescapable icon of our times. Now it is your turn!
Juror: Antoine Guilbaud
