U.S.80 was the first coast-to-coast highway in America, pre-dating even the fabled Route 66. It spans nearly 3,000 miles and runs between Savannah, Georgia and San Diego, California, covering an enormous diversity of the American landscape and culture.

During three visits between 2008 and 2009, I traveled U.S.80 with a friend several times, building a collection of large format photographs that document the road and its environs.

The project has just been published as a book with a foreword from the renowned journalist and broadcaster Jon Snow, and is being exhibited at Cole Contemporary on Little Portland Street during London's Frieze Art Fair.
