Hurry Up & Wait, 2011
Archival Pigment Prints, 24" x 20"
Hurry Up & Wait is an ongoing collection of images intimately exploring the often conventionalized and fantasized life of America’s trucking culture. For this project, the artists Tribble and Mancenido assume the role of both voyeur and subject, dedicating over a year as employed truck drivers. This unique portrait of America examines a way of life integral to the country’s commerce-driven consuming culture. Their still compositions transform the grit and grime ubiquitously associated to the subculture into provocatively quiet meditations of life between loads.
