ASX.TV: Doug Rickard – “A New American Picture” (2011)


Doug Rickard: A New American Picture
Presented in the Pier 24 Photography exhibition HERE.

May 23rd – December 16th, 2011

Utilizing the comprehensive image archive Google Street View for his series A New American Picture, photographer Doug Rickard virtually drives the unseen and overlooked roads of America, to find bleak places that are forgotten, economically devastated, and abandoned. Collectively, these images present a startling photographic portrait of the socially disenfranchised, providing deeply affecting evidence of the American Dream inverted. Selections from A New American Picture are included in Pier 24 Photography’s recent exhibition, HERE., on view May 23rd – December 16th, 2011.
