We hit the road with the photographer Hayley Eichenbaum. We put our foot on the gas and wear the tyres around the United States. Getting lost in the country’s iconic built landscapes feels strangely familiar. But in The Mother Road photo series, this Los Angeles-based artist forces us to change Route 66’s arid terracotta imagery for an extremely original, colourful and uncorrupted vision of this controversial, eclectic country.
Eichenbaum creates fiercely additive visual postcards which sometimes seem unreal
Eichenbaum creates fiercely additive visual postcards which sometimes seem unreal. She photographs spaces, buildings and everyday elements, all kinds of geometric and colored figures, which, together with a clean composition, fascinates the eyes of the onlooker.
Everything started with an Instagram account. She soon covered the classic Route 66. The American West fascinated her deeply and returned home with about 15,000 images. Hayley has more than 52k followers on Instagram and has made road trips through 13 US states. After seeing her work, it seems almost implausible that Hayley Eichenbaum doesn’t have proper photographic training. This reveals a privileged look and innate talent, but also perseverance and commitment. She hasn’t stopped taking photos since.
