SCENES FROM THE BUS: European Tour part II (in progress)
European Tour examines the shifting value of photography as archive. Through an exploration of an anonymous slide collection containing over seven hundred images depicting a group of American tourists and their travels through Europe via a tour bus in the 1970's, I seek to unearth their valued moments.
Scenes from the Bus is presented with the original captions as handwritten on the slides. Occasionally the caption is a critical component that contextualizes the entire scene, but more often it feels like a narration missing it's narrator, an unfinished story that we are left to piece together.
