“At the end of March, 2017 I left Petaluma, California with with my Father, Michael, driving north. The idea was to find a place for the two of us to settle somewhere in northern California. We spent weeks on the road crisscrossing the state–from Arcata on the Pacific coast across the Trinity/Shasta mountain range and on east as far as Reno, Nevada–in between we laid up in tourist spots, hardscrabble little towns and other oft-neglected backwaters well off the I-5. In the midst of this familial hejira, 6 weeks were spent at a pot farm in southern Oregon. These photographs are the record of those weeks, a set of evocative captures of the marginal, the brokedown, the stubbornly independent and oddly beautiful encountered along that journey.AUSTIN REYNOLDS.” - Austin Reynolds
