    Russ McClintock: N. American Roads

Photography: Russ McClintock crosses the wilds of America by bike

Posted by James Cartwright,

I’m tempted to introduce this post by saying something about the weather or my ride into work and how crappy it was today, but that would belittle the extraordinary journey that Russ McClintock made way back in 2004, cycling a mammoth 4000 miles in 51 days from Seattle to New York. The usually fashion-themed photographer hit the road with nothing but a one-man tent, his wheels and a camera, capturing the simple sights he saw with a tourist’s enthusiasm and the eye of a professional. I’m a sucker for images of roads trailing off into the distance at the best of times but the story of Russ’ solitary journey make these images all the more engaging.
