Devil's Promenade (Overlapse)

Dolezal and Shipley return to their home region of the Ozarks in the American Midwest, where locals persist in their search for a legendary floating orb of light that can only be seen from the Devil’s Promenade. It’s a lushly wooded road in an area where wanderers flock to seek possible redemption, or just to escape the boredom and darkness of ordinary rural life. Subtle but revealing portraits are mixed with archives and reinterpretations of mythical, folkloric tales. It’s a nuanced, mysterious and tender representation by photographers returning to the place where they grew up, but also reveals the current, stark realities of a remote place in America.

Antone Dolezal and Lara Shipley are collaborative visual artists whose work employs photography, video, sound, archival materials and bookmaking to survey the cultural and political dynamics of American history, folklore and mythology. Their work has been exhibited widely in museums and galleries in the United States, Europe and Central America and is held in notable public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art - Special Collections and Yale University. They are the author of several books including Spook Light Chronicles (Self-Published, 2015) and Devil’s Promenade (Overlapse, 2021), and their work has been profiled with the British Journal of Photography, El Pais, Leica Fotografie International Magazine, National Public Radio and Smithsonian Magazine. 

Antone has lectured and taught workshops at academic and non-profit institutions throughout the United States and currently teaches at the University of Nevada, Reno. 

Lara has taught at the University of Kansas, Kansas City Art Institute and is currently Assistant Professor of Photography at Michigan State University.
