A Parallel Road by Amani Willett
A collection of works by American photographer Amani Willett.
Using a multi-layered structure, this work explores and expresses the driving experience of black people in America over the past 85 years. A Parallel Road is a "road trip" that has long dominated our views through artistic and literary media by depicting how black people have been frequently threatened by terror, violence and death. We challenge the expression of the American ideal. By layering archival materials and new photographs on top of The Green Book for Black Drivers*, Willett explores the question of how long the path that has become a scene of violence and oppression against blacks in American society will continue. Are considering.
An ambitious work that gives a new perspective to road trips, one of the most important themes in the history of photography.
* "The Negro Motorist Green Book". A guidebook issued to African-American drivers in America during the segregation era from the 1930s to the 1960s. Information on facilities, restaurants, gas stations, etc. where black people can stay was listed.
