The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip
traces the rise of road culture in America and considers photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the early 1900s to present day.
“Joyrides, voyages of discovery, surveys, wanderings, migrations, polemics, travel diaries, and assessments of the nation. Is America even imaginable without the road trip?”
Featuring Robert Frank, Ed Ruscha, Garry Winogrand, Joel Sternfeld, William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, Alec Soth, Todd Hido, Ryan McGinley, Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs.
Brand Identity for Roth Bar & Grill
, part of the new Hauser & Wirth
gallery in Somerset.
The Roth Bar & Grill
combines gastronomy with contemporary art, serving honest, simple and seasonal food. The restaurant, designed by Luis Laplace, has at its core a site-specific bar created by long-term friends of Hauser & Wirth
, Björn and Oddur Roth, the
son and grandson of the late artist Dieter Roth. The chefs work closely with local farmers, gamekeepers and gardeners, to use entirely local and ethical British produce. A stone’s throw away from the Roth Bar & Grill, there are farms that produce fruit and vegetables and rear free-range livestock. The menu also includes wild birds and responsibly sourced fish that is delivered daily from the south coast shores. The kitchen team cure local
meats as well as making their own preserves, pickles, jams and chutneys. Vegetables, flowers and herbs are also grown in the garden amongst the farmland.
The letterforms of the identity mark echo the wooden beams of the Durslade Farm's roof construction.

Sculpture Today is a richly illustrated overview of contemporary sculpture, presenting work by more than 300 sculptors from over 50 years. The design challenge was to create a book that celebrated the individuality of each artist’s work while maintaining its own voice and personality.
The first question I asked myself was: ‘What is unique about sculpture?’ The fact that it’s three-dimensional. I thought I would have a go at creating my own sculptures using a very simple material that I am familiar with, paper. It was nice to work with the material that is also so integral to the object I was making — a book.
A bespoke paper alphabet was devised by cutting and folding up a flat sheet of paper, thereby making typography three-dimensional. First drawn by hand and then “sculpted” into a mini paper sculpture, each letter was allowed to change shape, playfully varying in width and height, giving each composition a handmade, non-uniform quality.
