New ongoing project

January 2016

The photo project about dependence on cars in the USA. About the American's love of cars. About the country where most what we see today was built around the cars, for the cars and because of the cars. Infrastructure.  Urban sprawl. Enormous shopping malls and car parks. Long commute. All "American way of life" is as it is thanks to wonderful or damned cars, depending on how you look at it..
First images were shot in Arizona. I am now getting ready for the next push.
