“It is a story that is evolving and that has not ended.” Steve Fitch’s (b. 1949) collection, entitled Vanishing Vernacular, captures the distinctive roadsides of Western America. Featuring neon motel signs and drive-in theatres, the large-scale images offer a nostalgic vision of the region, celebrating these changing and disappearing structures. A show at Kopeikin Gallery, Los Angeles, opens 14 July.
