1989, archival pigment print
Photo-eye Bookstore and Project Space, 376-A Garcia St., 505-988-5152 The exhibition American Motel Signs by photographer Steve Fitch continues through Feb. 18. Fitch seeks out retro signs advertising motels across the country, a project he’s been engaged in since the 1980s. His images recall midcentury America, and the road culture that forms part of the fabric of American life. The exhibit is shown in conjunction with the release of Fitch’s new monograph American Motel Signs 1980-2008, published by The Velvet Cell.
