Luminist Photographer Releases First Set of Images from 2015 Cross Country Trip

(San Diego, CA)––(06/19/2017) Local artist completes cross-country photographic journey to document untold stories and scenery of Americana, with this image from the trip’s second  stop. With the artist’s famous luminism photo blending technique - Route 66 to Albuquerque - is now being released to the public.

Michael's journey began in November 2015, when he left his hometown of San Diego and began driving his box van cross country to New York City and back in an effort to capture parts of America in an entirely new and exciting way through his pioneering style of luminism photography.

"It was a gloomy day. I stopped here as the view had me thinking about what must have gone through the minds all those who passed such a place."  Michael first thought of driving along Route 66 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Slattery’s next image from his eight week trip is set will debut in the next week. Featuring images from New York CIty, North Carolina Outer Banks, Atlanta, New Orleans and ending in Texas.
