In addition to the exhibition Rickard will be signing and celebrating the release of his new monograph of the same name as the exhibit. This is also his first solo exhibition in NYC.
The photographs show street scenes Rickard located using Google Streetview. Over four years he used Google’s archive to find the abandoned, devastated places in America. He then photographed them—some are rural and some are urban. His images are low resolution and reminiscent of paintings.
Rickard is also the founder of American Suburb X and These Americans, sites that bring together contemporary, historical and cultural photographic archives.
