This upcoming May, 2017, I will make my first trip through the heart of the USA. For this trip I’m going to cross and cover along 5 till 7 states. I will be visiting the capital cities of each state. After Crossing Europe I can’t resist not to also make a Crossing photo in every capital of a intersection. How they will turn out to be, I have to see and feel. Crossing is not the same in every country, and especially in smaller cities, like most capital cities are in the US. But this project is going to get some more layers of stories since I will be actively on search for other narrates. In these political times there must be a lot to tell so I assume I’ll find what finds me. I’m interested in the people behind the votes, in every town or city, for example. But also I like to see and feel what cities and people are doing to prepare for new energy, the climate impact and how there voices are heard or not. My travel starts with Denver, the capital of Colorado, then make my way up to Cheyenne-Wyoming and from then the road takes me down to New Mexico - Sante Fe, Taxes- Austin, Baton Rouge -Louisiana and Jackson-Mississippi. And when the time is in favorites with me perhaps I’ll visit Oklahoma (City) too!
Thats a lot of traveling, which I will do mostly by campervan or huge car to see the most along the way too.
I’ve been to the USA before in other times, but it has been a while. Even though I do not know a lot of people in those states. So if you can hook me up to a friend or relative. I’m very up for that. I look forward to make this trip, I actually can’t wait. My goal is to travel eventuall through all the 50 states of the US, at least visiting all capital cities and along the way see many many miles in between and that wha’s coming at me and tells his story. After my first trip I’ll come back to see where the stories take me and from then I will start a Crowd Funding initiative. To cover the cost, time and equipment. I’m totally open for sponsorship in camera equipment and airline companies!
