Description
Running from the Bering Sea to the Strait of Magellan along the main ranges of the Rocky Mountains and the Andes, the Continental Divide is the largest watershed in the Americas. Henry Wessel crisscrossed this natural barrier thirty-four times by car, photographing its changing landscape. On his way, he sometimes stopped and took photographs of house fronts, shacks, street corners, and of the highway seen through the windscreen, ending somewhere beyond the horizon. We accompany Wessel on this road-trip that reflects the gradual environmental change from inhabited grounds to austere landscapes, and are reminded of the inherent aesthetics of the everyday. Its literal description evokes feelings that cumulatively connect to establish an experience.
