With good reason the highway network has been described as the thread that unites the states of America. It is estimated that Americans annually travel 500 billion miles on US roads. However, the experience of road travel is as much about the places in which the driver stops as it is the open road. In Along Some American Highways British photographer Andrew Cross encounters a new reality of the American roadside: the gas stations, shopping malls, drive-thru businesses and distribution centres that cluster near highway intersections. These spaces have replaced a more traditional urban landscape throughout the entire United States. In his photographs Cross avoids the nostalgic and suggests a new way of looking at this all-American architectural phenomenon.
