For years, I've shared your sentiments on modernity, nature and what it means to be a man.
I recently attempted to hitchhike cross country from LA to NY. I documented my travels with an old Hasselblad and a sketchbook. My buddy and I made it as far east as Chicago and then decided to take a detour to NOLA. Due to my work schedule, I had to cut my trip short and fly home to NYC.
Eventually, I plan to move to a farm in rural France and write and illustrate children's books. In the meantime, I'm simply planning my departure.
Do you intend this to be a solo trip or are you open to the idea of a having a riding parter/ documentarian? You can check out my art at www.joeypark.com. Photos of my journey are being developed as we speak so they are currently not up.
