New book: A Parallel Road from Amani Willett

A Parallel Road by Amani Willett

We’re excited to share that we’ve collaborated once again with American photographer Amani Willett to bring you his newest project, A Parallel Road. A multi-layered work exploring the Black experience of driving in America, it challenges representations of the ideal road trip. This ‘alternative’ history has been sidelined for generations, but living in fear of suffering authoritarian violence while on the road is an everyday reality faced by people of colour. Amani’s new photographs are mixed with family archives, historical images and digital screenshots, combined with the backdrop of the historical Negro Motorist Green Book – a guide that Black people depended upon for survival for 30 years since 1939. It questions how long the road will continue to be a site of oppression for Black people in American society. Small in size but heavy with impact, this compact edition is hand-bound and is delivered in an eye-catching printed wrapper. View the full details here
