Item description for Icons of the Highway: A Celebration of Small-Town America by Tony Worobiec...
Tony and Eva Worobiec once again take to the road to create a beautiful photographic essay about an America that's fast fading away. Often when we think of the United States, we remember the things that once set it apart visually: the flamboyant oversized cars, ubiquitous diners, bright neon lighting, large city hotels that figured so prominently in Hopper paintings, and the once-uniquely American motel. Sadly, these are now in steady decline. In this collection of outstanding images, the Worobiecs capture the magic that remains, on journeys ranging from the far north—the High Line at the Canadian border—across the high plains to the desert towns of Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. The casinos, remnants of movie palaces, burger shacks, and roadside sculptures all evoke a once-glorious past.
