From the publisher: "The Great Unreal is the result of a series of road trips across North America made by Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs between 2005 and 2008. They embraced one of the most obvious clichés of art photography, the American road trip, documenting the icons of that genre -- mountains, diners, the road itself, like tourists collecting fridge magnets of every state. Their work asks how true photography is and goes even further: are we-were we ever-capable of authentic experience?"
