Looking at the ubiquitous land through my large format camera, I interpret American roadside conveniences through light. Each rest-stop I encounter glows like a theatre set, lit through corporate decisions that make the land itself invisible. I draw parallels and create visual equivalences by placing images of disparate geographic origins next to one another, asking questions about the role we play in building and perceiving the American nightscape.
