Andrew Cross's photographs depict the spaces of the long distance road-trip--the places passed through and passed by--a landscape that is now familiar almost wherever we are. It is the vernacular landscape of a growing consumer culture--fast food outlets, shopping malls, distribution depots, truck stops--that have congregated around highway exits and intersections. With "Along Some American Highways Andrew Cross continues his preoccupation with the functions and environments of motorised transportation. Cross brings together the inherent romanticism of the road journey with the corporate culture that now so dominates not only the environment of the American road-trip but also the wider world. His photographs are a traveller's glance of places that are themselves transient and impermanent, but all pervasive. This volume further contributes to his already widely published and exhibited body of work, both in Europe and America.
