Icons Of The Highway: A Celebration of Small-Town America
large product photo










  by Tony & Eva Worobiec

Often when we think of America we remember the decades which set it apart visually, the flamboyant and over-sized automobiles, the ubiquitous diners, the large city hotels in paintings by Edward Hopper and a concept which until recent years strangely remained unique to America, the motel. In a spirit of true enterprise, each establishment would tout for custom by installing brightly coloured and visually arresting neon lighting. Whilst this was a tradition that was later adopted by Europe and other parts of the world, it could never match the audacity and enthusiasm of the Americans who completely fell in love with it.

The 50's, a decade immortalized by the classic cult movie American Graffiti was perhaps the pinnacle of this fabulous indulgence; sadly, much of what we associate with this aspect of America is now in steady decline. In this collection of outstanding photography, husband and wife Tony & Eva Worobiec capture the magic that remains, on five journeys ranging from the far north - the High Line at the Canadian border, to the desert towns of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, in the South West.
