Breathtaking images of a road trip through the peerless landscapes of America Rob Hammer is a seasoned photographer. Besides his successful commercial career, he developed a rich body of personal work that revolves around his numerous road trips through his homeland, America. Roadside Meditations is a subtle reflection on the natural and sometimes mundane beauty of this vast country. His images speak about the freedom to be on the road, about the educational, transformative, and meditative character of the time spent traveling. Hammer's intuitive and nuanced photographs can be read as metaphors for the human psyche.
