tribblemancenido_280At the height of one of the worst financial crises in American history, photographers James Frank Tribble and Tracey Mancenido-Tribble went to truck-driving school, got their commercial driver’s licenses and hit the highway. With the long tradition of road photography, ever present in mind, Tribble & Mancenido set out on their own journey across America to explore and illuminate the trucking subculture that drives our economy. Spending one full year on the road, the couple drove their 18-wheeler over one hundred thousand miles and spent over two thousand hours delivering loads. Hurry Up & Wait is a personal, reverential and poetic meditation of an industry, and way of life, that most people know very little about.

Hurry up and Wait is exhibited at Sasha Wolf gallery in New York from 9 September – 23 October 2010.
