America’s cultural civilisation has been ingrained and mythologised in our collective memories. The dominance of monolithic fast food chains and the sheen of Hollywood movies have all played their part in creating a certain familiarity, like when you see a famous face in a crowd that you can’t quite place.
British film maker Leo Leigh’s photography of an American road trip conjures up such a feeling. Leigh’s photographs capture the diverse nature of both people and landscape. The image of a man holding a gun to the bloodied Bin Laden puppet is particularly special.
