Icons of the Highway
A Celebration of Small-town AmericaBook - 2008
Often when people think of America, the image of the roadside motel with bright, audacious neon lighting invariably comes to mind. The 50s, a decade immortalised by the classic cult movie American Graffiti, was perhaps the pinnacle of this fabulous indulgence. But much of what people associate with this particular slice of American life is now in steady decline. In this collection, husband and wife Tony and Eva Worobiec capture, in outstanding photography, the magic that remains - from the High Line motel at the Canadian border to the desert towns of Arizona and New Mexico.
