Flyover Country [FotoFocus Biennial]

A juried exhibition of photographs by local artists illuminating America’s interior regions, an often-overlooked bastion of cultural, social, political, and economic vitality.

A juried exhibition of photographs by local artists illuminating America’s interior regions, an often-overlooked bastion of cultural, social, political, and economic vitality. Air travelers flying coast to coast at 30,000 feet are often oblivious to the diverse, unsung populations of urban areas, small towns, and villages they are passing over. In many ways, the daily lives of people in these flyover regions are not so different from those in large coastal cities but there are many opportunities to capture scenes not found on either coast. The cultural, social, political, and economic vitality of the regions rivals that of either coast, and the intellectual and artistic aspirations are equally stimulating. Flyover Country intends to illuminate the often deliberate, sometimes perceived, anonymity of the forgotten, overlooked, or neglected subjects—social, cultural, or geographic demographics between coastal regions or ideological extremes.

Flyover Country is curated by Local Eyes, a group of five Cincinnati photographers: Helen Adams, Jymi Bolden, Melvin Grier, Samantha Grier, and Ann Segal.
