Mother Road Revisited explores the idea of travel and American culture. Photographer Natalie Slater explored Route 66 collecting vintage postcards, photographed the exact same locations, and combined the images. The resulting collage dramatizes the transformations that have shaped the Route over the years. U.S Route 66, known as the Mother Road and America’s Main Street, was one of the first official highways, established in 1926, the highway connected Chicago Illinois to Santa Monica CA, traversing Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.
