U.S. 80, the Southern Pacific, was the first coast-to-coast highway in America, pre-dating even the fabled Route 66. Spanning nearly 3,000 miles, it runs from Savannah to San Diego and covers an enormous diversity of the American landscape and culture – including rural southlands, scarred by civil war and civil rights, boom towns of Texas enriched with oil surplus, and creeping scarcity as scrubland gives way to the western deserts along the Mexican border. This series of photographs was put together over three separate crossings of the road, and encounters the landscapes in the genre of an American travelogue.
“This unusual collection of Americana is not to be missed.”
— The Spectator
