FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 27, 2012
A 5,600 mile journey into the heart of America
On April 5th, American born photographers Mikael Kennedy & Sean Sullivan will set out from Los Angeles, CA, deep into the heart of the country on a 30 day road trip to explore America.
In a project titled Ramblers Bone, Sullivan & Kennedy, both veteran travelers of the American highways, will wander east into the high deserts of New Mexico before turning north through the Rockies, into the wild lands of Montana, across to the Pacific for the last leg of their journey, bringing them down the California coast where the wilderness meets the water; the point where early explorers of the West realized they could go no further.
Wolverine, an American bootmaker since 1883, has chosen to sponsor these two artists, letting them loose on the two-lane black tops and dirt roads of America deep into the wilderness of the West. The American road has always drawn the lenses of photographers over the years, from Ansel Adams to Robert Frank & William Eggleston, all who burned countless miles on the open road where anything can happen and the photographers open themselves up to the endless possibility that is part of the American dream itself.
Please join these two as they log thousands of miles in just a few short weeks by following their travels on www.ramblersbone.com and help send them off from Stronghold Shop on April 5 from 6-9 p.m. (1625 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA, 90291, www.thestronghold.com).
