Roe Ethridge: American Spirit
Publisher: Karma, New York, ISBN: 9781942607670, Format: Softcover, 241 x 324mm, 72pp
In American Spirit, New York-based conceptual photographer Roe Ethridge (b. 1969) presents an unabashedly gorgeous collection of mountainous vistas and meta-advertising spreads that riff on the name of the eponymous cigarette brand. Wide-open views of Western peaks are interspersed with close-shot portraits, still lifes and consumer imagery, a Manifest Destiny atlas for the post-internet era.
