Drive by Shootings
By Michael Peven
Fayetteville, Arkansas: Primitive Press, 2004. Open Edition.
4 x 5.5" closed, 60" extended; 15 images. Accordion fold vertical structure in postcard souvenir album format. Images on one side only. Wrap fold with tuck in closure. Ink jet printed.
Art rather than violence: the drive by in this case is that of a traveler in a car; the shootings are photographic shots. The postcard-type pages (image only, the reverse is blank) show roadside attractions and sights in the (mostly) Western US — the Crazy Horse Monument in Custer, South Dakota; the Jimenez Sculpture in Albuquerque, New Mexico. All photographs taken during Peven’s travels from 2001-2003.
