A rust-colored luxury sedan parked in the shade of a young tree serves as the beguilingly mundane focus of this photograph by Adam Bartos. In the early 1990s, Bartos made a series of images at the recreational campgrounds of Hither Hills State Park in Montauk, Long Island. Taken in late afternoon over the course of several years, these evocative photographs documented the ritual of the obligatory family vacation, juxtaposing the cultivated yet natural landscape with its seemingly alien visitors who contrast rather than blend with the setting.
