Completed! Relics of Americana

Relics of Americana, featuring Evan’s photographs of abandoned motels, diners and roadside attractions is now complete and available here!

Motels, diners, and drive-ins were once a celebrated part of the American roadtrip experience. Today, they decay. 

After a wildy successful Indiegogo campaign in summer 2014,  Evan took to US Highway 301 with Brian C Veith to explore the dormant relics and forgotten byways of US Highway 301 in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida. Now, after months of editing, this docu-photo book is finished (finally. woo!) and available for purchase.

You can follow Relics of Americana on Facebook and Instagram for updates on future projects, and visit Blurb.com to purchase the book.

FRESH: Relics of Americana – Photographing US Route 301

Evan steps behind the camera (and behind the wheel) this August!

Check out his latest project on Indiegogo: Relics of Americana: Photographing Route 301.

Evan and his friend Brian take to the road in South Carolina, Georgia, and Northern Florida, documenting the current state of  motels, diners, gas stations and more along US Route 301. Nicknamed the Tobacco Trail, this stretch of highway boomed in the 1940s – 1960s, but much of what remains today are relics of their former glory.  At the completion of the road trip, Evan will publish his images into a photo survey, showcasing US Route 301 today.
