about the book:

The road movie Easy Rider, Yellowstone National Park, Route 66, Stephen Shores Uncommon Places or David Lynchs Twin Peaks'; these random names and places immediately fire the imagination. Objects in Mirror shows just how deeply the American landscape has penetrated our daily lives: in films, adverts, books and music. Fact and fiction merge in a landscape that lends itself to being viewed through a frame, be it a car window, a photograph or a television screen. Contributions by Rixt Bosma, Andr Waardenburg, Caroline von Courten, Hans Gremmen, Venturi Scott Brown and associates, Harmen Liemburg, Raymond Frenken and Helmut Smits.
