Click to preview Polaroad Trip photo book

I was a delivery driver for my dad's printing company, which required driving throughout the Central Valley of California.

I got more satisfaction from my trips by making quick mementos with my Polaroid camera.

While traveling the backroads of these small towns, I'd often pause for a train, or watch patterns in cherry trees and orange groves. I noticed water towers and tires, metal buildings and abandoned cars, and of course, countless fruit and nut stands with hand-painted signs.
