Voyager | Mercury Studio | Arts | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Thu., Oct. 20 and Fri., Oct. 21 2016



The peculiarly toxic year of 2015, with its constant drumbeat of needless death, xenophobia, and race-to-the-bottom politics, sent Justin Cook westward. The Durham-based photographer headed to Las Vegas with a digital rangefinder camera and an inclination to put some distance between himself and the state of the world. The photographs in Voyager present an American West in its present flawed state, where remaining unspoiled vistas do battle with those marred by hordes of heedless humans and their inelegant accoutrements. One telling image shows a bison and an SUV at an apparent standoff on a highway at Yellowstone; in another, a jagged section of the snowcapped Teton range towers over a landscape whose lower third is a cookie-cutter row of Porta Potties. As a part of the Click! Triangle Photography Festival, the exhibit runs for two days at The Makery at Mercury Studio, with an artist talk at 7 p.m. Thursday and a reception on Friday night. —David Klein
