A few days ago, we returned home after traveling the US Southwest for two months with an old VW camper van. Those of you who follow this blog frequently know, all others feel free to check out the five previous posts regarding that journey down below.
We are known as adventure-sports, lifestyle and landscape photographers and those subjects are what we mostly love to shoot, but on this trip we started a personal project that went somewhere completely different.
Staying on so many campgrounds along the way, we quickly noticed the huge variety of vehicles – gigantic motorhomes, tiny caravans, slide-in campers, vans, busses, some dating back to the sixties, some fresh from last year. Quite different to the scene here in Germany. And the owners of those vehicles were mostly equally as interesting. So whenever we had parked our VW on a campground, we went for a walk and looked around for subjects to shoot.
When we look back at this project now, it was something, that made this whole journey even more special. We got to know so many nice people and heard so many great stories and just had a good time chatting about this and that. Everyone of them had a good story to tell. We really cherish those times and can’t wait to continue this project when we go back to the US …
P.S.: All portraits were taken with a Hasselblad H4D-50 and the HC 3,5/50 mm lens.
