Blue Highways, USA (Part 1)
On a road well trodden by the visual and literary anthropologists of the early to mid 20th Century – Frank, Lange, Steinbeck and Keroac – Blue Highways both pays homage to those, who with brutal honesty, illustrated the previous century and seeks to shed light on the nation at present, which despite the pride and nationalism synonymous with the flag, the rhetoric of liberty and freedom, is facing the possibility of a decline the likes of which none from the current generation have faced.
As The New York Times’ Australian correspondent writes in a preface to Blue Highways; “How does a flag’s ubiquity grow in inverse proportion to the stridency with which one adheres to the values it embodies”? In essence, this question is at the heart of what Blue Highways seeks perhaps not to answer but rather to pose to The United States of America.
