A haunting exploration of place and the nature of the road trip by American photographer Delaney Allen (previously featured here). Examining states of isolation both on and off the road, Delaney combines landscape and still-life photography to create a new and unfamiliar portrait:
“Shot over 8 trips exploring California between 2016-2018, I began to reevaluate the traditional American landscape photography through the use of gels and filters. As the project expanded over time, I looked to utilize time on the road. Supplies were picked up at various grocery, thrift and dollar stores while passing through small towns. These items were later utilized as tabletop motel still-life’s or personal interventions within the nature I was examining. Gels and strobes became a secondary tool challenging the notion that straightforward photography tilts toward documentary. This application allowed for an addition to the unnatural state I was building.”
