LA County Fair Photo Competition

RT 66 | Interact

Photographers were invited to submit artwork that reflects the intrigue of Route 66 that calls travelers from around the world to the 2,448 mile journey. The experience that has inspired today’s Americana is one that is best remembered through personal stories of travel and adventure. The 23 selected artists present unique perspectives of the “Mother Road” through portraiture, documentary, landscape, food, architectural, street, wildlife, conceptual, aerial, and fashion photography.
