“Suddenly we’re deep in blues country. People sitting outside faded, paint-peeling houses on broken down chairs and boxes. Boys playing hoop on hard-packed dirt. Sun setting on the cotton fields. A Delta Creme Donuts sign that says, ‘We accept food stamps.'” — From Peter Alson’s Highway 61
A book documenting an 8-day road trip in 1996 along the legendary blue highway made famous by a Bob Dylan song. With stunning photographs by Joe Gioia and an essay by Peter Alson, Highway 61 is a trip back in time to a kinder, gentler America.
