Photographers and curators have long been interested in capturing political and social issues and often create series and exhibitions based on the desire to uphold human rights. As a new presidential administration is upon us, many winter-time exhibitions have an eye towards the issues on the minds of many.
Looking at the meaning of the word, paradise, specifically in regard to its meaning for Americans, photographer Eliot Dudik went in search of every Paradise Road in the country and photographed what he found when he arrived at “paradise,” as a new way to, “take the temperature of the country.” The resulting images are as diverse geographically and culturally as the nation itself. To-date the artist has photographed over 90 of the 196 Paradise Roads currently in the country. Also on display concurrently in the gallery is Paradise Out-Front, an exhibit curated by Dudik in which he asked participating artists to interpret what paradise means to them. The exhibit includes images by Aline Smithson, Matt Eich, Mark Dorf and Ben Alper, among others.VIEW ON AMERICAN PHOTO MAG
