The magazine of the photo-essay
November 2017 issue
Before Elvis there was nothing
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
by Andre Lutzen
Fifty years after Robert Frank’s The Americans, the German photographer André Lützen sets off on his own odyssey through everyday life in America. His road trip takes us from Colorado to Mississippi. The series radiates Lützen’s own singular style: documentary photography that derives its vitality from atmosphere and movement while also evoking aspects of self-imposed solitude. The mood here is a strange mix of poetic tranquility and aimless restlessness. Focusing on commonplace things, these images unflinchingly expose the depths and shallows of the American dream.
