Discover The Open Road at Telfair Museums


May 25—September 3, 2018

The road trip is an enduring symbol in American culture. As photographers have embarked on trips across the United States with the express purpose of making work, they have created some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium.

This exhibition explores the photographic road trip as a genre, tracing the rise of road culture in America and looking at photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the early 1900s to present day.

Discover the Open Road today at the Jepson Center!
