Description of book: This book is a collection of 34 color photographs taken with a variety of film formats, exploring the town of Breezewood Pennsylvania. Breezewood is a town I often passed through on numerous road trips growing up and I always found it to be a peculiar town due to the fact that no one actually seems to live there. The town of gas stations, restaurants and motels exists solely to service cross-country travelers. In this book I’ve strived to create a portrait of a town most often passed by without a second glance that in a microcosm represents the thrills and pitfalls of the Great American Road Trip.

The best thing about self-publishing: Paper is a wonderful way to view photography. By self publishing I find it possible to affordably reach a wider audience with my photography projects and present them in a tactile format that attaches a sense of intimacy to the viewer that might not be found when looking at work online.

Description of book: Whilst there is a photography tradition of documenting the American road trip, I felt that traveling by bike would expose me to opportunities and encounters that could be overlooked if travelled by car or bus. Taking a slower pace and being on my own speed allowed me, as an observer passing through small American towns, to see the beauty in the banality of everyday life. I feel the decision to cycle not only gave me a stronger connection the landscape but also to the people I met along the way.

The best thing about self-publishing: The freedom.
