sign vs signifier

sign vs signifier by mdx

One of the first photos from the 2nd A303 trip. This time shot on digital with a 50mm lens on a wet, rainy Thursday afternoon. Instead of stopping at lay-bys I parked at service stations and photographed the signs in the landscape, the petrol stations, the cafes and the motels. In many ways it all feels done to death, certainly from an American angle, but there doesn't seem a similar canon for England and the road. Certainly Paul Graham's A1 - The Great North Road is an influence as is Radio On by Chris Petit.
