Intimate photographic portraits by Western Doughty

ARTIST TALK ON THURS JAN 23RD, 5:30-6:30p

Living Arts presents the photographic work of Western Doughty in his show, “Route 66: Room 116”. Doughty examines and de-romanticizes the lore of Route 66 through a series of intimate portraits. Seeing the many motels along the famed highway as temporary homes and emotional waiting rooms, Doughty created a space for subjects to spontaneously reveal their own stories. He lived in a motel room on Route 66 for the duration on the project but also made the room available to anyone who wanted to come by, any time of night or day. Subjects were encouraged to pose themselves and the resulting images are full of texture, emotion, and personality.  Viewers are advised that this exhibition contains strong content and may not be suitable for children.
