I am obsessive-compulsive when it comes to filing my work.
Years ago I met another photographer whose work I admired, and I asked him about a particular negative because I had loved the print and he said, “Sure, I’ll show you,” opened up a drawer in the kitchen and there with the knives and forks were his negatives.
What does all this have to do with Cross-USA? It caused me to determine that I never wanted to be like this guy. That I wanted to be careful about filing my work and accurate about categorizing it.
Cross-USA happened as a group or collection when I realized I had no idea how to classify or file the many images I shot while traveling cross-country on various jobs and self-assigned things.
You won't find much on particular cities like New York, San Francisco or Chicago because they each are in their categories.
