All photographs are based on the matrix of Stephen Shores legendary 'A Road Trip Journal'. Volker Renner tried to redo all the photographs Shore did on his trip in 1973.
Renner kept the information Shore made and changed them if the name had changed within time.
People and places Renner could not find and could not photograph are left blank in the layout. The route varies in some places, due to the fact that Shore didn't take pictures the whole journey. 37 years later Volker Renner followed his photographs like a pilgrimage - or like a tourist who follows his attractions.
His photographs as Renners attraction, in search of Shores tracks, his motives and movements within a city and on the road.
