I remember reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac for the first time in high school while I was traveling back and forth between Colorado and the Northeast for ski competitions. I felt particularly close to the narrator, Sal Paradise, as we both traveled from east to west and back again on trips that inspired my future love for adventure.

Featured here, Catherine Armistead’s art seamlessly connects literature, photography and travel in a truly beautiful form. Her On the Road collection consumes me with wanderlust as it narrates a road trip from Charlotte to San Francisco. These black and white photos capture the remote yet alluring locations that she traveled through and contain a jazz age nature that reminisces Kerouac’s world. Check out the full collection here:
