'The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip' is the first book to explore the photographic road trip as a genre. It opens with a comprehensive introduction, which traces the rise of road culture in America and considers photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the early 1900s to present day.

Here, editor Denise Wolff, author David Campany, and featured photographers Joel Meyerowitz, Justine Kurland, and Todd Hido discuss the book, and their own relationship to the the road. 'The Open Road' is a visual tour-de-force, presĀ­enting the story of photographers for whom the American road is muse.
