Planes, Trains & Automobiles

In the Print Sales Gallery

Print Sales presents a group show exploring our enduring fascination with man-made transportation and the journeys they evoke: metaphoric, philosophical and literal.

The images in Planes, Trains & Automobiles span the 20th century, crossing continents, technological developments, urban and rural landscapes and the new rituals and behaviours provoked by these ‘travelling machines’. Yet despite the photogenic allure of the vehicles themselves, the artistic focus here is on the human condition. From departures to arrivals, the station forecourt to the open road, the back seat of the car to the back carriage of a train, the courting couple to the lone figure, the works on display portray love, life, encounters, betrayal and loss through the lens of such international luminaries as Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, O Winston Link, Louis Stettner, and Sebastião Salgado.  

All works available for purchase. Please contact printsales@tpg.org.uk for more information.
