Somewhere Along the Line

From 2011 to 2017 I traveled over 100,000 miles by car, focusing my camera on the massive network of superhighways that has become ubiquitous throughout the United States. Rather than moving quickly through these spaces I made the decision to slowly and deliberately dwell within them, looking at the road as a stage where narratives play out and opposing forces intersect. The boundaries that line these roadways, whether real or imagined, are examined by looking at the separations between public and private space, privilege and need, the individual and the collective, and the countervailing ideas of home and escape. The resulting compilation of photographs depicts the state of America’s infrastructure as a physical manifestation of its economic, social and environmental circumstances in unforeseen moments of humor, pathos and humanity. 

Somewhere Along the Line was published as a book by Kehrer Verlag in 2019.
