America | 2023

For many years I travelled backroads and two lane highways across my home, the United States. I saw the tarnished edges, but also the beauty. But in 2023, it seemed to be a divided nation, with the aftermath of a pandemic, and the wheels had fallen off. There were derelict houses, desperation in front yards, and hidden landscapes. There were people with warmth and strength. It was a bruised country, with both promise and menace.
