There Is No Right Time
In There Is No Right Time, Mikayla Whitmore comprises a series of photographs she took over several years while exploring the landscapes of Nevada & California. Whitmore seeks to highlight a series of unintentional vestiges of fading beliefs in order to trace a pantheon of contested principles that reflect romantic notions of the American West. These pictures aim to contextualize and amplify mementos of American values by way of isolation and freedom.
