A photographic trip through America’s roadside façades
In her ongoing series, The Mother Road, Hayley Eichenbaum documents the tainted romanticism of roadside architecture on Route 66 in the American Southwest.
There’s a cinematic quality to Hayley Eichenbaum’s The Mother Road, a staged seduction that feels more fitting for a screen than reality.
Indeed, cinema was one of Eichenbaum’s key influences for the project, specifically the work of Stanley Kubrick. ‘The cinematography and the way he uses geometry is so enticing. I aim to present scenes reminiscent of the classic silver screen. Yet the images are vacant of characters, evoking a sense of mystery and perhaps unsettledness.’
