Taylor Dorrell photographs the daily pursuit for happiness amongst a group of American Midwesterners house-sharing in Columbus, Ohio
Words by Taylor Dorrell
Fourth Street is a photo series about a group of American Midwesterners who live in a house on Fourth Street in Columbus, Ohio. The images touch on themes regarding Americana and youth. There's a freedom in being in your early twenties. With the uncertainty of the long-term future, there's fulfilment found in the pursuit of daily happiness. Motorcycles, video games, and alcohol are some of the ingredients involved in the daily lives of this group of tight-knit friends.
As a publisher and Community Interest Company, TRIP is dedicated to showcasing unconventional stories that may otherwise be overlooked. We aim to give a platform to the unseen and a microphone to the ignored. Expression is a right and should not be confined to those that can afford to work for free; which is why we strive to support a diverse range of creatives in their work, commissioning exciting projects and creatives to visualize them.
Founded as a magazine in 2013 by photographer, Dean Davies, TRIP was born from a desire to provide opportunity and exposure for image-makers across multiple platforms and medias. With a focus on people and place, in 5 years TRIP gained a loyal readership, and became known for its honest image output and representation of the underrepresented, featuring over 800 image-makers from across the world through a website, 5 magazines and 3 free zines.
As TRIP C.I.C. we are not interested in profiting from the activities of the organization, and re-invest all income back in to consecutive publishing projects.
