GoSee presents : ‘Roadside Meditations’ by Rob Hammer, appearing at Kehrer Publishing

Rob Hammer is a seasoned photographer, and besides his successful commercial career, he has developed a rich body of personal work which revolves around his numerous road trips through his homeland, America.

Roadside Meditations’ is a subtle reflection on the natural and sometimes mundane beauty of this vast country. His images speak about the freedom to be on the road, about the educational, transformative, and meditative character of the time spent traveling. Hammer’s intuitive and nuanced photographs can be read as metaphors for the human psyche. At the same time, they candidly capture the passing of time reflected in the manmade structures within the landscape.

Like a road trip, the sequence of images in the series lines up to become a route of its own, on which the viewer’s eye travels in observation to experience the inimitable American landscape.

“Would it make you want to hire me if I told you about the awards I’ve won or referred to myself in the third person? Whatever. I’m an advertising/documentary photographer based in San Diego, California, most known for my unique way of shooting athletes and adventure. To date, I’ve been very lucky to shoot with legends such as Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O’Neal, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, … and many others for clients including Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, Reebok, Foot Locker, Puma, Uber, Skullcandy, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Runner’s World, New York Times, and Andis, to name a few. Which all makes me sound really important, but the truth is, I just love being a photographer.” Rob Hammer

Black Lives Matter, Covid-19, … KEHRER Publishing presents the book Chicago 2020 by Ryan Bakerink with historic photos from the year 2020 

How is it possible to feel immediately at home in a place you have never seen before? This question still haunts photographer Ryan Bakerink twenty years after he first stepped off the train in Chicago, where he continues to live to this day.

This book is dedicated to the city for which his heart beats and describes a journey of self-reflection that ends in a time capsule of sorts. Throughout 2020, he took photographs in all seventy-seven community areas of the American city to trace his fascination for it, to find his place in it, and to understand how it has shaped him. 

Chicago 2020 is more than a declaration of love for a city. In a time of social and political turmoil defined by the pandemic, Bakerink discovers hidden treasures amidst the emptiness and the pure beauty of humanity.

The photographic work of Ryan Bakerink, who grew up in southwest Iowa, is focused on social issues and counterculture lifestyle, particularly within the music industry, off-the-grid communities, travel, and portraiture. Ryan seeks to expand his own personal and social boundaries by searching for authenticity in the world around him.

The ultimate goal of Ryan’s work has been to pull back the curtain and to expose the general public to lifestyles, communities, and places that have been overlooked to help provide a greater understanding of human nature.

Co-Autor Tim McIlrath is the lead singer and songwriter of multiple platinum-winning Chicago rock band Rise Against. Rise Against is known for their politically-charged music and outspoken social comments on topics such as social justice, homophobia, animal rights, economic inequality, and modern warfare.

His project has been featured on CBS – and we have the YouTube report for you on GoSee.
