MORRISVILLE: Thomas Fuss – “Backroads America”

Opening Reception November 8, 5 - 7 pm
November 1, 2012 – January 7, 2013
The Common Space Gallery, River Arts

Backroads America, an exhibit of ultra-high resolution photography,  provides an unconventional visualization of what lies "off the back roads" travelling across the United States. 

Photographer Thomas Fuss examines the beauty of  "real Americana"  with microscopic precision using the extreme panoramic format of the Linhof Technorama S III camera.  From random “side of the road” places of obscurity, to those of fame and infamy, the exhibit includes the America found “in between” while taking the viewer to the breathtaking natural spectacles of Monument Valley, the arched rocks of Moab, and the redwoods of California.   Photographs also include the man-made spectacles of Graceland, Speed Week on the Bonneville Salt Flats, and the scene of murders from the book "In Cold Blood."

Thomas Fuss is a photographer whose award winning work has been merited and exhibited by the Professional Photographers of America. With over thirty years of experience and having travelled to 68 countries, he puts his unique eye and technical expertise into displaying photography as an art form.
