Photos by Larry Niehues
For Larry Niehues, embarking on a road trip and passing through small, lost towns and meeting the incredible local characters that inhabit them “is the best way to explore a country deeply.”
So, what happened as he crossed the US to take photos for his book, Nothing Has Changed? “Things happen! The wheel of your car gets stuck in the desert sand 50 miles off road, a gas leak in a 100-year-old motel in a lost town in Nebraska, a redneck who threatens to kill you if you take a pic of him… but all of that is part of the fun!” he says.
