Hurry Up & Wait, 2011
Toyo 4x5 & Mamiya RZ, x 20 x 24", Duration Variable
Hurry Up & Wait is an ongoing collection of images intimately exploring the often conventionalized and fantasized life of America’s trucking culture. For this project, the artists Tribble & Mancenido assume the role of both voyeur and subject, dedicating over a year as employed truck drivers. This unique portrait of America examines a way of life integral to the country’s commerce-driven, consuming culture. Their still compositions transform the grit and grime ubiquitously associated to the subculture into provocatively quiet meditations of life between loads, focusing on the loneliness that accompanies it.
