Milk Gallery presented Roadbook, an exhibition of black and white silver gelatin photographs made and printed by documentary photographer Hunter Barnes on October 7th, 2015. Spanning a ten year period, the photographs document the people and aspects of American culture and communities ignored by the mainstream and his artistic gaze focuses on the faces of proud groups of people who are misrepresented in the modern American narrative.

Hunter Barnes’s photographs flash us into moments and scenes most people will never get to experience first-hand during their lifetime. Barnes writes, “The road has taught me what I know today. These are the stories I have waited to tell...for years I’ve traveled with my cameras capturing moments of time with the people the road has led to me.”
