ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Vanishing Vernacular features a selection of color works by photographer Steve Fitch focusing primarily on the distinctive, idiosyncratic, and evolving features of the western roadside landscape including topologies of neon motel signs, drive-in movie theaters, radio towers, and ancient rock pictographs. photo-eye Gallery is also proud to display Fitch's large-scale murals for the first time in Santa Fe.

"The photographs in [Vanishing Vernacular] blaze a trail through our Western landscape. It was a selective and personal view that was created over thirty-eight years and many miles traveled. Although it is my story, I think it is also one that most Americans who have wandered our roadways in the West will recognize and appreciate. It is also a story that is evolving and that has not ended." Steve Fitch
