Untitled from The Hitcher, © 2007 by Chris Coekin
On a cold and rainy day in the UK, would you stop to pick up this hitch-hiker?
Photographer Chris Coekin plays the Hitcher in his new book, and delivers photo portraits of himself (over several years of this experiment), as well as formal roadside portraits of the strangers who acted on impulse to give him a lift.
This book is way more bleak and "beat" than Jack Kerouac's amphetamine-driven romantic novel On The Road. See more photos, and read the full book review here.
