About this photograph :
According to the photographer, the only way to discover the American continent is by car. He compares the latter to cowboys’ mounts. Olivier Lavielle provides us with an escape route along Route 66. By connecting Chicago to Los Angeles, Route 66 crosses the United States from one end to the other. In 1926, it was the first tarmacked transcontinental road in the United States. Route 66 may have lost its official existence in 1985, but it remains mythical in our collective imagination. Olivier Lavielle has of course taken this road. He follows the well-trodden path towards the west. Along the route, in service stations, or abandoned on the verge, Lavielle stops to photograph cars. Corvette and Buick remain the symbols of an America ahead of its time. The American dream seems to be summed up by these vehicles representing modern battle steeds ready to conquer new territory.
