When The Road Seeks
Since 2012, Fish has traveled the road for various lengths of time across the United States, using the camera as a way to mediate the definition of place in relationship to the self. The road has acted as a surrogate home during this period of investigation shaped by both shared encounters and temporal engagements with the land. This work is meant to invite the viewer along this meditative journey formed through experience, people and the land. When the Road Seeks began as a search for a new home in the most literal sense. Being born and raised in NYC then leaving for the first time, revealed the self-contained environment the city held for the photographer. Her travels exposed both the expansiveness of the U.S. and a sense of unity she felt across the transformative landscapes. At first these locations felt disparate from the urban spaces she grew up in, yet time soon provided spaces of comfort and solitude.
