Candace Plummer Gaudiani traveled the United States photographing the secretive world of professional and amateur body builders. She earned their trust, and captured the vulnerable nature of these people who seek physical perfection.
Forty-eight vertical landscapes shot through the windows of railroad trains moving across the United States create a cool nostalgic look at the notion of a country as experienced by Candace Plummer Gaudiani.
