A Presentation by Bryan McCormick
Bryan McCormick will be presenting a report summing-up his road trip experiences over the last two years. His journey began here in Las Vegas in late 2015. Back then he had promised he would return after two years to talk about his experiences. This is it—for one night only. His presentation will cover both the great and not-so-great moments from the road, with a notable focus on the election year. As he has said of his experience, “the trouble with going out to discover America is that you will find it.” Topics will include becoming a nomad, the sharing culture, bigotry, inequality, surfing, photography, and leaving it all behind.
Bryan McCormick is a lifelong experimentalist who was educated as an art historian, worked as a programmer, and became something of a financial nerd in later life. He has been writing and making images in various media since his teens. While in Las Vegas, he was best known for his contributions to the Vegas Vernacular Project and as one of the partners in the Las Vegas Camera Club. Some of his writings covering the earliest portions of the road trip can be found on the Desert Companion blog.
