From Robert Frank to Justine Kurland, Jack Kerouac to Thelma & Louise, the road has called out to artists. We're looking for images of interstates, blue highways, back roads, gravel roads, small towns, grand vistas, national parks, tourist traps, motels, waysides, truck stops, adventure, solitude, friendship, and kids in the back seat. Take us on a trip where the journey really is more important than the destination. If you've ever fired up a mixtape or a playlist and hit the open road, show us what you brought back.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that emphasizes the significance of the journey itself over the final destination. The call encourages artists to share their unique perspectives and experiences of the open road. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
