Captured on the road to Las Vegas, this quirky roadside sign stands bold against the azure skies of West Coast America.
This photograph forms part of Richard Heeps' Dream in Colour Series from his sold out book Man's Ruin. Shot over seven years, the series captures archetypal American scenes like Drag Racing, Burlesque and Rockabilly Culture. The exhibition of Man's Ruin toured in over twenty museums and galleries in the UK & Europe.
Richard's long held interest in American pop culture, the saturated colours of some of its most famous cities, and the American lifestyle, leads him to continually explore the country's 50 states. When he is not travelling through America, Richard works from his studio in Cambridge.
Following his debut exhibition at the Photographers Gallery in 1989, Richard Heeps' work has been shown widely in the UK and across the world. Recent highlights include Milan Design Week 2019 and Design Garden at The Stylist’s Wardrobe - a collective exhibition of art and design inspired by nature. Richard is represented by Bleach Box Photography Gallery and TAG Fine Arts. In 2018, his work Thrills was included in the 250th Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
