Along the Way

Project Description

“Now if ever, in this place and in this mood, the traveler can abandon himself to the rich pastime of window gazing.”

This excerpt from Walker Evans 1950 Fortune article Along the Right-of-Way was the genesis of this book, which is meant to be both a temporal and precious documentation of travel. The mere act of printing a photo has become an endeavor and we all too often scroll through endless photo streams on our screens. This book asks you to feel the weight of the printed photo. The actual prints are juxtaposed with images on newsprint. The translucency of the newsprint and the weight of the printed photographs interact with each other and create unexpected moments as you read the book, not so different from travel itself.
