“The Tiger Beetle” by Photographer Evan Allan

Brooklyn-based photographer Evan Allan’s 2020 photobook, “The Tiger Beetle,” is the culmination of a month-long road trip across the United States. Functioning as a fragmented travelogue of sorts, the book brings together disparate sights and experiences in the form of images accompanied by snippets of original text. “Together, these travel photographs and short non-sequiturs describe a countryside full of mysterious symbols and double meanings,” explains Allan. “Though primarily a meditation on travel photography, themes of memory, home, and the ambiguity of language also slip in between the pages.”
