While by no means a comprehensive retrospective of Steve Fitch's vast body of work, the exhibit features several earlier series represented as well as newer work to give the viewer a context in which to examine forty years of Fitch's work in the American West. Steve Fitch is a contemporary of Richard Misrach and Roger Minick, having graduated with them from the University of California at Berkeley in 1971. While there Fitch began a project photographing the vernacular roadside of the American highway for which he received two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships in 1973 and the second in 1975. Eventually, the photographs were published in the monograph, "Diesels and Dinosaurs," in 1976.
