Highway 30 Photography is a gallery site containing the work of Jeff Nesheim. An eclectic mix of collections showcases a vision until recently focused on the Midwest, its cities and its open roads.
Street work was shot mostly with Leica and Fuji cameras and lenses. The rest of the work on the site was shot with those and a smattering of other gear.
After a recent relocation to Colorado, expect to see the collections here evolve to include explorations of the Mountain West and Rocky Mountain landscapes.
Enjoy and come back soon!
My name is Jeff Nesheim and I am, among other things, a poet and photographer living in Denver, CO. My interest in photography goes back to 1977 when a family friend gave me a Minolta SRT100. From there I spent years both behind the lens and in the darkroom. Hopefully, I carry the darkroom aesthetic into my current digital work.
Wanderlust informs my vision. A good day is a day spent behind the wheel of a car, on both well-traveled and forgotten highways and byways. Many of my images – whether landscapes, portraits, or still studies – attempt to capture desire and longing, a search or question, and sometimes, the things found on the journey.
Most of my life I have lived on or near and traveled via Highway 30. Lincoln Highway, as it was named in 1913, was the first transcontinental route conceived with the automobile in mind. My roots run through Highway 30 and my images are the record of my journey along its routes, both in reality and in spirit. This photoblog is where these wanderings are recorded. For stretches, it may represent particular projects. At times, it may detail tangential excursions. Always, thank you for taking the journey with me.
