About Route 66 1973-1974
In the summer of 1973, John Schott drove Route 66 from the midwest to California and then back. All the while sleeping in his pick-up truck and photographing with an 8x10-inch Deardorf view camera. Among his subjects were vintage motels situated along the highway. So, it was a selection of these photographs that were included in William Jenkins’ seminal New Topographics exhibition at the George Eastman House. The twenty images that were included in this exhibition have been well documented. However, they were never reproduced in a manner showing the richness of detail and tone displayed in the original contact prints.
So, John Schott’s photographs are held in the permanent collections of many public collections. Including those of The George Eastman House, Rochester, New York, also The Museum of Modern Art, New York; as well as the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University Art Museums.
