These photographs were made by John Schott in the summer of 1973 as he drove Route 66 from the midwest to California and back, sleeping in his pick-up truck and photographing with an 8x10" Deerdorf view camera. All images here are from vintage contact prints on Kodak Azo paper.

Photographs are grouped into two sets: the 20 images from this series selected by curators Bill Jenkins and Joe Deal for New Topographics; and a second set of the remaining photographs from Route 66 Motels.

Hi John,
I think the last time we spoke I was the editor at Afterimage. I am still in Rochester and writing a chapter of my thesis on New Topographics. So thank you to have your images available on your website for consultation. By the way I noticed (an editor's reflex I guess) that "Deardorff" is spelled Deardorf (an "f" is missing) and that the exhibition was dated 1973 (year of your project) when it was in 1975.

Best regards,

Beautiful photos. The Casa Blanca Motel (picture 7 in the
"Route 66 Motels" Photos Included in "New Topographics" slideshow) is located in Logan, New Mexico, which is actually along US Route 54. Still a wonderful photo.
Very Nice Work! Enjoyed them all
Really GREAT work my friend ;) Keep it up!
