These 30 remarkable black-and-white images were selected from the larger collection of 60 photographs in John Telford’s 503-mile photo tour of US Highway 89 in Utah. Congress designated much of Highway 89 in Utah as Heritage Highway, and Telford’s journey from Garden City in Rich County to Big Water in Kane County highlights the local, historic and indigenous qualities of the Beehive State. The show will include travel essays by Utah writers.
Highway 89 winds through mostly rural Utah, and passes the historic homes of internationally famous painter Maynard Dixon, sculptor Avard Fairbanks, and outlaw Butch Cassidy. Today’s citizens, artists, and businesspeople continue to make significant contributions to Utah’s economy, society, and culture.
John Telford is a native of Utah and has been taking photographs of the landscape and the people for more than 35 years. His work has been widely published, with more than 50 magazine cover photographs. His photos have also been exhibited nationally and internationally. He has been included in more than 60 solo and group shows. He has an MFA from the University of Utah and is a Professor at Brigham Young University.
