In the United States, there are many cities called Rome. These pictures document the photographer’s journey from Rome to Rome across North America. Fuelled by a curiosity for these parallel ‘eternal’ cities, this body of work subtly mixes genres. Here, the American road trip meets the postcards of imperial Rome. Both subjects have been overly photographed; with their essence exhausted by representation, the allure of the American Dream and a never-ending fascination with the remnants of history.
