This special portfolio of photographs, published in 1981 by Victor Landweber and the Artists in an edition of 100 boxed sets of original prints, captures unique scenes that express a love affair with, and dependence upon, this country’s major highways and local roads. Photographed between 1968 and 1982, these images vary in technique and approach. Some of them record unusual events seen along highways; others focus on anonymous features that make all of our roads look alike.

This exhibition is organized by Rochelle Steiner, Chief Curator & Director of Public Programs and Education.
