On Thursday, December 12, an exhibition of Venetia Dearden’s project ‘Eight Days’ will open at Third Rail Coffee in New York City. Dearden will be attending the event.
‘I felt an urge to take off on a trip – to do something unscripted. To document a self-expression that is increasingly precious in a society where we have perhaps become imprisoned by our own material desires. Our spirits can fly far and beyond these paradigms.’
The project was created over the course of eight days during a road trip across the American West. The book of the images was nominated for Recontres d’Arles Book Award in 2012 and was featured as one of Joerg Colberg’s best books of the year in 2011.
