You Can't Get There From Here is a collaborative project by Meryl
Truett and Rebecca Nolan photographing the towns removed
from the Georgia state map. In June of 2006, the Georgia Department
of Transportation decided to remove the clutter from
state road maps by removing town names that they deemed unnecessary.
This action set off a citizenry outcry and media storm
with coverage in local papers, on regional television, the New
York Times and National Public Radio. This unilateral move and
the subsequent backlash crystallized the idea that permeates their
work: the evolving social terrain of roadside Americana.
