Since Kerouac the road trip has been an American rite of passage, something that has not been lost on the nation’s photographers.

David Campany has collected some of the more memorable efforts in his book ‘The Open Road’. From Robert Frank’s The Americans to Todd Hido’s ‘A Road Divided’ through Joel Sternfeld’s ‘American Prospects’ it’s an inspirational journey that makes you want to through your Nikon in the back seat and just drive.
