Halfway To Midland explores a state of mind and a sense of place.

Photographed in Texas, this investigation of iconologies questions the relationship between the past and the present.

Integrating my ongoing fascination with regalia, my interest is not simply documentation. Each semi-autobiographical reality consists of connected scenes from elaborate internalized myths. I am interested in the complexities between self and culture where the chorus of dreams and reality seem to inhabit the same quotidian space.

Nancy Newberry’s exploration of social rites goes beyond the purely documentary. In her work, the American photographer Nancy Newberry examines the strange rituals of the everyday, and the interrelationship between the individual and society.
