Doug Rickard: A New American Picture
Doug Rickard: A New American Picture at Stephen Wirtz Gallery. "...Rickard’s series consists of color photographs of American street scenes, located using the internet tool Google Street View. Rickard takes full advantage of the technology’s comprehensive image archive to virtually drive the unseen and overlooked roads of America, bleak places that are forgotten, economically devastated, and abandoned. Collectively, these images present a startling photographic portrait of the socially disenfranchised, providing deeply affecting evidence of the American Dream inverted." More...
