Nashville Scene Highlights Jerry Park's "Slow Roads" in December Art Crawl Roundup

Jerry Park's recent photographs pointed a lens at the creative process itself, taking viewers into the workspaces of artists and designers all over Nashville. His latest work images the outdoors, capturing the natural beauty that can be found all over Tennessee's rural roadways. The photographs make up Park's new book, Slow Roads Tennessee: A Photographic Journey Down Timeless Byways. Seeking to evoke a sense of nostalgia in the photographs, Parks shot his scenes with a plastic film camera. The soft focus and dark corners of the images recall vintage photographs with all the light leakage effects you might find in a favorite Instagram filter. Take a look at the exhibition at The Arts Company, and take home a book for under the tree.
