“The road not taken” by Arnaud Montagard

Arnaud Montagard’s The road not taken gives a view of America and its diners, from the Pacific Northwest to the Southwest.

In his photo series “The road not taken”, French photographer Arnaud Montagard took shots of America, from Idaho to New Mexico, capturing its Americana essence.

“My work is above all a story about light. The strong shadows create a feeling that make the pictures look like paintings.”

There is a timeless elegance that Arnaud Montagard captures in his photography that echoes work by painters such as Edward Hopper. An isolated figure, lit beautifully, staring out of view or caught in his own thoughts. Or classic American diners with their strong retro shades and bold lines. You’ll find the same subtly and eye for detail throughout his portfolio. Whether that is through his analogue film or digital work.
