"Be it city or desert, the wilderness sleeps 15 centimeters beneath American roads and many photographers have documented the desolation of these roads through the windscreen of a car. But the photographs in this book, their jaggie violence forever lost in the eternal median of 1 and 0, shatters the American road legend as if it were a cracker. Clearly, this is a new aesthetic made manifest by the emptiness of the digital." - Shinya Fujiwara
The photographs in this series were taken between Oct 2019–April 2020, a period encompassing the outbreak of the pandemic in the US. Outside of tonal adjustments, none of the photographs in this collection have been altered in post production.
