Following in the tradition of the young and passionate, cross-country traveler on a pilgrimage of exploration, New York based photographers Mikael Kennedy and Sean Sullivan hope to pick up where Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson left off. Only instead of sex, drugs, and rock n’roll, the duo set out to capture the American dream on camera, starting in Los Angeles, CA, and journeying deep into the heart of the country on a 30 day road trip to explore this massive nation.
In a project titled Ramblers Bone, Sullivan & Kennedy will wander east into the high deserts of New Mexico before turning north through the Rockies, into the vast wilderness of Montana, and across to the Pacific for the last leg of their journey, bringing them down the California coast.
Sponsored by Wolverine (an American bootmaker since 1883) the two artists will be let loose (and hopefully well-funded) onto “the two-lane black tops and dirt roads of America deep into the wilderness of the West.”
While we’ll be checking back in with the artists post- journey, for now you can “join” them as they travel thousands of miles in just a few short weeks by following their journey on www.ramblersbone.com, and helping send them off from Stronghold Shop on April 5 from 6-9 p.m. (1625 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA, 90291, www.thestronghold.com).
