Somewhere Along the Line




Fascinated by the genre of the road trip in American photography, Joshua Dudley Greer (b. 1980, United States) travelled over 100,000 miles (160,000 kilometres) by car through the US, photographing the surroundings of superhighways. Instead of moving fast, as you normally would on a freeway, he unhurriedly dissolved into places he passed through. By depicting his own country from the point of view of magical realism, Greer blurs the distinction between real and fictional boundaries; between privilege and need, public and private, the individual and the collective. Somewhere Along the Line isn’t just a story of the broken American Dream, but a manifesto that uses humour to soothe the traces of harsh reality.
