I did an incredible road trip across America looking for the most beautiful, deserted and untouched places across cities and states. I spent months planning the trip, looking for the best blogs, websites & articles, looking for long-forgotten places. I contacted the local people and set up some meets with regional photographers, to get to know more. I was going to cover 10 states without doing any touristy things or visiting shopping spots.
The majority of my time was spent in Pennsylvania where I visited 21 different locations and took thousands of pictures. I had to swap memory cards along the way because I was taking so many pictures. But that was actually the point of my trip – to capture some of the most beautiful unoccupied places across the States.
I’ve combined my 10 best shots to share with you. Go ahead and have a look!
