Series of photographs taken by Jan Kempenaers during a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 2010. The images were shot with an advanced hand-held digital camera, which allowed him to work freely in a snapshot style whilst maintaining a very high quality. Within the context of Kempenaers' oeuvre, this new work underlines his desire to shift further toward abstraction instead of documentary work.
