Remember when getting there really was half the fun? When the neon-lit, Mom-and-Pop hotels that lined America's highways were full of families out on road trip adventures? Artist David Petr almost magically cracks open the door to those memories by narrowing in on a single detail – the tiny, complimentary soaps found in yesterday's hotels, casinos or airlines. Familiar yet forgotten by countless travelers, Petr captures them in stunning detail, photographing each soap individually before assembling the images into a collective portrait. What emerges is an evocative, nostalgic pallet of mid-century colors, typography and graphic design.
