The Great and Ghostly American Road Trip

It’s all about taking that detour and finding the beautifully haunting moments of traveling through the unknown. Walker Pickering is a young photographer and photography teacher based not in his Texan hometown, but on the road. And you won’t find him on Route 66. He’ll be taking the back roads of America, where the kudzu* grows like it’s swallowing the earth, empty pink motels stare at you silently and that beautiful red car is the only friend you’ve got.

Take a trip with Walker Pickering, out there, ‘Nearly West.
