In August 2015 I chose to start living in my '88 Dodge Ram camper van. Come November I started to drive to Los Angeles in the van, documenting anything that compelled me along the way. Getting across the border was a 2 day process.
I crossed over into the States through Detroit, Michigan. Immediately upon entering Detroit, 50 feet in, literally, my van broke down. After some time at an auto shop, a complimentary banana and a lot of waiting around, my van was good to go.
Fast forward a little bit and I was in Thornton and Lansing, Illinois. After forgetting my credit card in Ann Arbor, Michigan I had to stay planted in Illinois until I received a new one before moving on. I slept in every Walmart parking lot in the surrounding areas. I took some day trips to Missouri and Chicago and got to know the major roads around there.
One of the days to pass time I ended up at a matinee showing of The Martian at this particular Cinema 8. Before entering the cinema I noticed the reoccurring red car pattern and the large red signage against the bright blue sky. It was perfect. I then climbed the ladder on the back of my van to reach a different perspective to take the photo.
