CKG is excited to launch our fall programming with an exhibition by Colin Smith that pays homage to the timeless summer tradition of road tripping.
Some of my earliest memories as a child were the long summer vacation road trips. Heading across the Rocky Mountains in Grandma’s white, overheating, 64 Mustang, or my family’s annual pilgrimage across Western Canada. [These] early family vacations began an insatiable appetite for the open road.
Smith’s latest series of large format photographs takes us on an epic journey from Banff to Utah, presenting landscape in a way most of us haven’t seen since we were kids laying in the back seat of the family car. Familiar sights are seen anew—mountains, deserts and rivers all flipped and trapped in the confines of Smith’s trusty 76 Boler trailer.
