My RV photographs are playfully rooted in America’s tradition of travel photography. But instead of capturing the wild frontier with my camera, I create “landscapes” from the stripes on the sides of the campers that travel through these vast open spaces. Titled after the camper’s themselves (Intruder, Skamper, King-of-the-Road), these large-scale, horizontal “color fields” are meant to be seen up close so that the viewer is immersed in not only the color, but also the rust, rivets, weathering, and fading. Just as the camper epitomizes America’s optimism, its spirit of adventure, and its love for “the road,” it also typifies our preference for a road experience that carries on four wheels, the literal comforts of home.
