The Fine Art of Travel: An American Road Trip
How many times have you heard a recently returned traveller describe having “done” a certain destination or fifteen? As if, been there, done that – next!
But as photographer Kyle Ford explores in An American Road Trip, it’s really difficult for anyone to avoid this checklist mentality when we see so many similar images of iconic destinations secondhand, through advertising and social media. Sometimes even a particular view can become the established “right” way of seeing a place.
Kyle takes this idea a step further by photographing familiar road-side scenes from the classic American road trip route, with a catch – they’re all seen through Google Earth. Almost as good as the real thing, right?
