Theme: The road trip is a cornerstone of American culture. The road has come to embody freedom, raw inquiry, renewal and (re)invention. And while the history of the road trip has long been documented in literature and through film, the lack of a proper dialogue on the road trip as a distinct photographic genre is still quite undeveloped.
We invite proposals that explore the influence that the road has had on photography and, in turn, how photography has influenced the perceptions of the road trip. We invite writers and photographers to play creatively with the idea of the American Road Trip. The road trip does not need to be about America or even the road.
Proposal Deadline: October 29, 2017
Accepted essays will be expected to be 1,000 - 2,000 words in length.
Curated by Kyler Zeleny in conjunction with The Velvet Cell.
