New York, New York, 2003 by Phil Bergerson is the eleventh print in WORK’s limited edition print series. It is an archival pigment print in an edition of 16 and was created to coincide with the exhibition Phil Bergerson: American Artifacts, 21 March – 10 May 2014.

Since 1995, Canadian photographer Phil Bergerson has made numerous extended road-trips throughout the United States, criss-crossing the continent in search of the scattered remnants of the ‘American Dream’. American Artifacts presents an extract from this sweeping topographical survey. Bergerson’s photographs unearth liminal spaces inscribed with the residue of human behaviour and surplus cultural production: places where detritus, disappointments and desires collide in shop window displays, hand-painted murals and crudely made signs. Operating as both documentary photographer and cultural commentator, Bergerson draws on the American social landscape tradition to assemble a complex and poetic photographic portrait of a nation in transition.
