Ever wished you could quit that day job, leave it all behind and hit the road?
Ever wondered what it would be like to buy a clunker, sleep in it, live in it, while discovering a country, a continent and its people?
Welcome to ooAmerica, a website hosting multimedia content produced during ooa revo’s USA Road Trip including videos, photos, writing, artwork and more.
The main film / documentary project will feature interviews of the very different people I’ve met along the way, with one common question: “What’s your philosophy in life?”
Watch the movie trailer below:
USA Road Trip Map and Itinerary
The aims are, on paper, relatively simple: promote open exchange of ideas between people of all tides, as well as tolerance and peaceful thinking.
I left in April from New York to California, and returned back East in September – sleeping over 100 nights in the car and going through about 33 states (over 15,000 miles solo).
I left again the next year from March through May, with a friend this time, in order to visit the states not yet seen, meet new people and get more pictures and footage (24 states and 9,000 miles).
Another project is a series of large photos, in a (crazy) attempt to capture the diversity, beauty and deep feeling of the United States as a whole: its country, scenery, culture, and folklore. In one word: its pulp.
Readers and friends are welcome to contribute in any way. Thanks for your support!
I hope to eventually post more about the photographic approach, and, more generally speaking, the approach to this journey.
