The Tiger Beetle


Published as a book by Aint-Bad

The Tiger Beetle is a fragmented travelogue created during a month-long road trip across the United States. Within, photographs of roadside relics and found language reveal an American landscape of contradiction, equal parts humor and sorrow. Accompanying these images are contextless snippets of thought, memory, and conversation in the form of original text. Together these travel photographs and short non-sequiturs describe a countryside full of mysterious symbols and double meanings.

Though primarily a meditation on travel photography, themes of memory, home, and the ambiguity of language also slip in between the pages.
