‘I felt an urge to take off on a trip – to do something unscripted. To document a self-expression that is increasingly precious in a society where we have perhaps become imprisoned by our own material desires. Our spirits can fly far and beyond these paradigms.’
Venetia Dearden’s project, ‘On the Road’ is a part of her publication, ‘Eight Days’, her latest book in which she documents an eight day lasting trip of a group of friends ‘in the epic sweep of the American West’. The images are strong and beautiful, giving the viewer the impression of being right there – in the desert wind, with dear friends, sharing a great experience.
