The [Un]Romance of Business Travel

Setting off from the midwest to California for an out-and-back business trip, I decided to make the entire day a photo documentary exercise. In order to “unify” the myriad of spaces and textures, I shot in black and white. Traveling alone, and reviewing the stark images as I captured them, the entire affair was a very meditative experience. Albert Einstein was said to love train stations, as they were real representations of a clash of worlds and timelines, all funneling through a single space. Visually journaling this day, I began to catch a glimpse of what he meant.
