How did this show come about?
Back in the day, a girl named Susan and a boy named Chris entered the world. They were born in small, predominantly Mormon towns, located in Utah and Idaho. The duo grew up in these quiet conservative communities, in the seventies and eighties, instilling in the two queer kids a desire to find a place where they belonged. They each discovered a love for photography, and found solace and purpose behind the lens of a camera, where they could frame their own narrative. Years passed and with camera in hand, they independently traveled to San Francisco, New York, Europe, and South America, where the vigor of urban life captured their hearts and became a favorite focal point. One Sunday afternoon, during a photo critique, at the start of the global Pandemic, their paths crossed. As the Pandemic continued, their friendship flourished through a constant exchange of images and critique, various photographic adventures, and conversations over margaritas and tacos. And now, bound by their love for wanderlust, photography, and tacos, they are collaborating to bring photo documentation of their travels to the walls of Wheelhouse in Willow Glen.
