About the book:
In the mountains of California or on the rooftops of New York, the feeling of utter remoteness can be triggered everywhere in the United States.
Louise Amelie and Aljaž Fuis have explored these peripheries – in the literal sense of the word – with their camera, the fringes and outermost areas of both the American countryside and metropolises. The photos in their book “OFF WORLDS” portray more than a mere geographic separation from society. They capture a systemic or perceived isolation which is frequently transformed into a statement of independence, pride, and liberty.
