Passing Impressions of the American Road
Autolandscape, Colorado, 1971
Elaine Mayes took photos while traveling at 60 miles per hour, and sometimes not looking through her camera.
Inspired by "Zen in the Art of Archery" by Eugen Herrigel, Mayes believed that she could produce great photos by relying on her instinct and experience.
