Serif & Silver Issue II: Artrifacts
Nothing is alone, we are not without our cameras, our cameras are not without film, and film is not without light. It is that light which creates the photograph, bringing it from the real world into a singular place freezing that moment.
This summer we drove for 11 days from Portland to Wyoming, visiting national parks, hometowns, and roadside attractions in the process. The photos you see within this issue of Serif & Silver are from that trip, cataloged and presented to provide you with an experience not of the attractions, but the places in between.
Artifacts : Past, Present and the American Roadtrip explores the remnants of what was previously there and how it ties us to what is next. The images within this collection are linked through their layouts, locations, and themes in ways that formed without premeditation. The stories that are told within the pairing of images, from two different times and often locations that leave something behind in its companion.
In looking at these photos, I ask that you view each alongside its companion. These photographs were not made to be viewed alone, but rather in a paired sequence.
