These images were captured during several road trips and visits to various locales in the U.S. From New York to Nevada, along Route 66, New Orleans, Asbury Park and Detroit. Along Route 66 there is an effort to preserve the nostalgia of the 1960's, while in Detroit neighborhoods are experiencing a revitalization through new community initiatives including art installation and returning the outlying urban blight to prairie lands. The 9th Ward of New Orleans is going through similar changes as recovery efforts are made by pioneers scooping up abandoned houses and rebuilding with a new community spirit. Asbury Park has witnessed a similar revival in recent years, while the old is preserved in New Mexico and offered to tourists and pilgrims in the form of miracles in Chimayo. Vegas lures the tourist trade with reproductions of cities worldwide. All of these efforts are part of a changing America wrestling with a post-industrial economy and a renewed culture.
