Project description: The book concentrates on selected moments of a journey across the American landscape. It can be understood as 3 different journeys across the country as each book contains repeating pictures in every book (9) as well as changing pictures (30). The aim of this approach is to show the vast amount of possibilities that a journey can offer. If you open all the booklets on the same page, this alternative pictures function as triptychs, forming an unity.
The series presents an intimate view of the experiences of a visitor in a foreign country. It has been presented in various exhibitions in Europe and the USA and it won 3 awards.
