29 Scrapyard / Auto Salvage, Shamrock, Route 66, Texas


Photographs from a 2013 road trip through the southern states of the Great Plains - this collection focuses on some of the iconic landmarks and evocative sites along the sections of Route 66 that run through Oklahoma and the Texas panhandle, the roads that really gave birth to the legend of the Mother Road as depression era Okies sought to escape poverty - and the Dust Bowl - by heading west in search of the rich farmlands of California. This is road trip Americana at its very best.
