Lost places are true treasures for photographers. Dilapidated buildings, abandoned places, a vibe you won't find anywhere else.... the old prison is such a lost place in Joliet, Illinois. A surprise on Route 66.
Route 66. Only by hearing the name I see the most different images before my eye: I'm dreaming of freedom, endless roads through the American Midwest and driving into the vast of a country, which seems more and more mysterious and at the same time fascinating to me with every visit. Did you know that the original Route 66 starts in the heart of Chicago? Almost right next to The Bean, the famous sculpture by Sir Anish Kapoor in Millennium Park? What a perfect opportunity to fit in a real American road trip following one of the most famous roads worldwide!
