Somewhere Along the Line: An American road trip

Between 2011 and 2017, American photographer Joshua Dudley Greer travelled more than 100,000 miles on the US Highway network.

Rather than driving through quickly, Greer made the decision to slowly and deliberately dwell in these roadside spaces, looking for unforeseen moments of humour, pathos and humanity.

The resulting project, entitled Somewhere Along the Line, shows an unexpected side to an infrastructure that forms an integral role in American society and culture.
