I don’t know why, but certain things seem more absurd in The West. Perhaps it’s because the Route 66 aesthetic was one with a sense of whimsy and humor–colossal cowboy boots and tee pee hotel rooms. Photographer Sandy Carson, a transplant from Scotland, has spent over a decade-long road trip chronicling his fascination “with everyday occurrences in the social landscape and explores the spaces between clarity and imperfection, composing a personal slice of America” in his new book, I’ve Always Been a Cowboy in my Heart, published by Yoffy Press. The book includes an essay by Dr. Katherine Parhar.
