'When we used to go on the road our gang had a history together... It was like being in a band, only our gig was with a camera instead of a guitar and a set of drums. Looking over these photographs made me yearn for that Bohemian life that only the road can give you.' (Bruce Weber).

A visual road-trip across America, taking in New York, The Everglades, Cape Canaveral, Hollywood, Golden Beach, Montana, Nebraska and Santa Barbara along the way. Roadside America is one of Weber's most celebrity-rich works, with compelling portraits of stars such as Allen Ginsberg, Louise Bourgeois, Richard Avedon, Ella Fitzgerald, Jeff Buckley, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Georgia O'Keefe, Sam Shepard, Sean Penn, Francis Ford Coppola, Robert Mitchum, Brad Pitt, Peter Johnson, Matt Dillon, Elizabeth Taylor, Chet Baker and Robert de Niro. Weber loves to travel but, as is evident in these photos, loves to return home to Little Bear Ranch and his dogs.
