Work by Bill Vaccaro

From the series Roadside Attractions

[nggallery id=5]

Roadside Attractions is part of a long term project of images taken on numerous road trips east of the Mississippi (including Canada) that began in 2005. This project is strongly influenced by memories of a childhood of family vacations watching the world wiz by from the back seat of the family Chevy: the view of the dome of the U.S. Capitol for the first time, a miniature re-enactment of the Civil War in a Gettysburg, Pennsylvania museum; a visit to the family farm of my cousin’s father in the hills of West Virginia. Since then, the open road has been like a beacon to me, drawing me to sights as unusual as eight cars stacked on top of one other impaled on a spindle, or as commonplace as a bus depot. billvaccaro.visualserver.com
