A Photographer Roamed The U.S. For 3 Years. And Produced THESE Awesome Shots…

Alexandre Ayer — a photographer — and Emmanuel Solotareff — a writer and director — took a three-year road trip covering 20,000 miles through the wildest corners of America, from New Mexico and Utah, to Nebraska and Tennessee. And I, for one, am thankful for it.

The photographer and director took shot after amazing shot while travelling around the U.S. on their epic trip, with the idea of making a film. Here is what Alexandre had to say about how they did it:

I had to be behind the camera, which meant Emmanuel had to be in front of it and it had to be about nature — he wrote story around all those things. Of course while filming in these different places I had to take photos – it was just too beautiful.

Yes, it is too beautiful.
