ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This collection of works was born from a habit of seeing what is lost, old, forgotten, and strange. It aims to transform the overlooked, overused, forgotten, and weathered into an opportunity to see history, humanity, and beauty in what most would consider to be nowhere.
Interactive elements will allow guests to view geographic details as to where the photograph was made and to experience an accompanying song befitting the mood and subject of each photograph. The exhibition also has a complete accompanying Spotify playlist curated by the artist.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
“Barstow” Steve Smith is an historian, research archivist, audiophile, and public speaker. He is also, of course, a photographer. With a fondness for surrealism and documenting decaying remains of the last century, his artistic vision reminds us that beauty can be found in the most overlooked of places.
