Roadside Americana and nekkid women.
Get Your Kicks: Route 66Mishka (128 S La Brea Ave Los Angeles, CA 90036) Map it
Nate "Igor" Smith recently crowd-funded a cross-country road trip along Route 66, somehow managing to pick up a range of interesting women willing to get naked in public for this most unique photo series. When Smith reached the end of the road, he discovered he shot exactly 66 rolls of film (not including one that got lost). The result of his ambitious endeavor is a self-published, limited-edition, hand-numbered series of just 250 books. Smith is also exhibiting dozens of photos at Mishka's new gallery space, on view for six weeks. While Smith could have had his show in NYC, he realized it would make more sense to have it happen in LA, where Route 66 ends. We couldn't agree more.
