Tread, 6 is part of a larger series of photographs created along footpaths in Juneau, Alaska. While working for a trail maintenance non-profit there, Roussos walked and tended the trails daily.  She began to take note of the paths as a communal experience and photographed them as a record of her relationship with the landscape. This series is a reflection of Roussos’ interests in the intervention of trail creation, the practice of tending to a trail, and the marks they make in the landscape.

Meg Roussos (b.1990) was raised in Southern Ohio and has lived in Seattle, WA since 2020. Cultivated from 10 years spent exploring the wilderness—she has hiked over 8,000 miles and completed three major U.S. long distance hiking trails—her work queries the landscape and her place within it. She earned a B.S. in Photojournalism from Ohio University and an MFA in Studio Art from East Tennessee State University. In 2023, Roussos had her first solo show, TREAD: MEG ROUSSOS, at Chung 24 Gallery in San Francisco, curated by Heather Snider. She was an artist-in-residence at MJR Projects in Bainbridge Island, WA (2021), Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, CO, (2021) and recently took part in The Arctic Circle Residency expedition in April 2024.
