This series was made during a two-month-long road trip across the US with a man named Joe. Joe and I were dating when the trip began. About half-way through, trivial things were getting to us; it was becoming clear to the both of us that this wasn’t working out. I was overcome with guilt. Here I was, witnessing the most extraordinary places our country has to offer, yet all I could think about was my own loneliness and rejection. Looking through these images, it is clear that the camera captured my truest feelings.
