Scenes of Summer

Photographer Raymond Smith’s 1974 cross-country road trip is on view at The Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

In the summer of 1974, Raymond Smith drove a Volkswagen Beetle from New England through the South, camping and photographing people and places along the way to California. His car broke down in Kansas City, and Ray Smith took the train home to New Haven, Connecticut, where he printed some of the 750 exposures he had made with his Rolleiflex and Minolta twin-lens cameras. Few of these rare prints have been exhibited or VolkswagonRaySmithpublished until now, the 40th anniversary of Smith’s trip. Opening this week, “In Time We Shall Know Ourselves: Photographs by Raymond Smith” will be on view at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Louisiana, through September 18.

The majority of Smith’s photographs are portraits of people encountered in his travels, with additional images of the American vernacular landscape, from highways and street scenes to storefronts and movie theaters. This exhibition was organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts in Montgomery, Alabama, and curated by Michael Panhorst.

Pictured are “Bourbon Street, New Orleans” and “Rural Highway, Southern Georgia, after Rainstorm” by Raymond Smith, Gelatin Silver Print, 1974, Collection of the Artist.
