John Sanderson feels himself part of a tradition of New York-based itinerant photographers. Working with traditional large format film cameras, he seeks the broad American social landscape. His “Railroad Landscapes” were the subject of an extended one-person exhibition at the New York Transit Museum from 2014-2016. See more of his work on his website.
The counterpoint between personality and place, portrait and landscape underpin much of what John Sanderson admits are travel memories of his younger days, when his vantage was from the passenger seat of his father’s pick-up.
