The Roadside Gallery offers fine art photography by Martin Garfinkel. Our gallery features vintage photos of classic American Images from a by-gone era. The Roadside Gallery features a large selection of over 5000 fine art photographs taken by Martin Garfinkel representing nostalgic Americana. Photos depicting the vanishing roadside imagery from such places as historical Route 66, includes classic automobile photos and images of vintage cars, hot rods, neon signs, abandoned barns and old brick buildings, hotels, motels and spectacular vistas and landscapes from places that seem forgotten by time.
The Roadside Gallery and Martin Garfinkel celebrate a more playful and colorful aesthetic on the past, and represent a distinctive American landscape populated by great American Mom & Pop businesses, diners, gas stations, drive-in movie theaters, roadside businesses that are no more and ghost signs of yesteryear, in a powerful and contemporary manner. Garfinkel’s unique perspective captures the America your parents and grandparents knew, or that you may have known as a child. These Photographic pieces of fine art are in stark contrast to most fine art imagery; and all make for exceptional gifts and wall décor ideas for any home or profession setting.
The most common theme running through Garfinkel’s work is represented in his many years traversing the United States on his Harley Davidson. Over the past many decades, Garfinkel has taken thousands of photos along America’s most famous highway, Route 66. What captured Marty’s imagination was the nostalgic American landscape passing along the roadsides seemingly frozen in the 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's. His enthusiasm for the open road was surpassed only by his love for capturing the amazing scenery passing by, and being there when the landscape and lighting where just right. If you are Route 66 enthusiast, then Marty’s images and memorabilia should truly speak to you.
Martin Garfinkel is also the author of “Sturgis, South Dakota – Motorcycle Mecca”, a photo pictography of the 1990 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
All photos from Roadside Gallery are printed with pigmented inks for the highest quality and longevity.
The Roadside Gallery is now offering two new items: Fine Art Drink Coasters and Acrylic Photo Sculptures.
Our fine art coasters are durable 4" drink coasters which are custom made to order, and may feature any image whether from Roadside or an image supplied by you. These specialty drink coasters may be used as promotional items for your business, or as a unique way to celebrate an anniversary or birthday.
Our acrylic photo sculptures also make for unique promotional items for you or your company; and they range from 3" to 10" high. Like our coasters, we start with an image, and then that image is transformed into a 3D statue. Ever wanted your very own statue, or possibly a 3D image of your company logo, then again, maybe a 3d model of your motorcycle? Please contact us for more details.
