POP 66: POP CAN PINHOLE PHOTOS OF ROUTE 66 – by Wes Pope
Since 1998 I have been photographing people and places along historic Route 66 using cameras made out of soda cans. The goal is to make images that look distorted and old while documenting modern life on the Mother Road. Along the way I met Roy Rogers & Dale Evans, Jesse Jackson, Jr. and the women of Exotic World, among many others.
This project has been feature on NPR’s The Picture Show and has been exhibited at the Photographic Center Northwest, at Craft Chemistry in Syracuse and at Corrosive Gallery in Chicago. I hope to publish it as a book someday soon.
