Inspired by David Lynch’s The Straight Story, Swiss
photographer Yann Gross (born 1981) embarked
on a motorbike journey through Switzerland’s
Rhône Valley. There, he found an uncanny match
for the rural American Dream: biker babes, drag
racing, line dancing and tricked-out RVs. In
Horizonville, Gross examines how cultural types
can exceed their geographical origins.
