America Now at Montserrat Gallery



i'm ridiculously honored to have a selection of photographs from the haul road in the America Now exhibition at Montserrat Gallery. i owe much thanks to Leonie and Shana at the gallery for asking me to be a part of this exhibition. i have a huge amount of respect for the other photographers in this show.

from the website:
America Now presents a selective visual commentary on regional identity within the context of the increased globalization of culture. America is seen through the eyes of six American photographers: Daniel Cheek, Ben Huff, Shane Lavalette, Laura McPhee, Alec Soth and Zoe Strauss, with work based in five regions of the US, including Alaska, the West, the Mid-West, the Northeast and the Southeast. Each artist conveys a specific sense of place in the form of a photo essay.
press release can be found here.

i can't make the trip out East, but no doubt it will be incredible. the exhibition opens with a reception tomorrow night, and the opening is Friday with a panel conversation with Zoe, Shane and Montserrat photography faculty Don DiRito. the show runs from February 5 - April 10.

Congratulations Ben.
Since you can't be there, is there any chance that they could stream the panel conversatiop for your benefit? I'm sure they have plenty of techies that could figure it out.
