This weekend we dropped into the Crane Kalman Gallery in Brighton’s North Laine to check out British photographer Samuel Hicks’ first solo exhibition, “On the Way”.
Here’s an introduction by the artist himself:
“The … images are from 3 trips to the States over 18 months, driving through Texas, New Mexico, California and Nevada.
These trips were essentially quite loose; sometimes we knew we had to be at a specific place in a week’s time, but how we got there and where we stopped was decided along the way, sometimes by looking at the map, or often asking someone what it was like there.
I wanted to have a look around, see for myself…”
Typically, the photo I loved (Mustang, above, shot in El Mirage, California) was the most expensive. If anyone has a spare £1100 lying around… donations gratefully received.
If you can’t make it to Brighton for the show, much of it is available to view online at FOTO8.
More images by Samuel Hicks are on his website, samuelhicks.com.
On The Way runs from 4th June to 19th July 2009 at Crane Kalman Brighton, 38 Kensington Gardens, North Laine, Brighton BN1 4AL.
