Artifact Uprising

The Western States

Photographer Kevin Russ abandoned everyday life for an epic solo road trip up and down the Pacific coast. Shooting exclusively on his iPhone and editing on VSCO Cam®, he captured wildlife, rural scenery, and the quiet, contemplative moments that define life on the road.

Kevin partnered with VSCO Artist Initiative™ to create The Western States, a beautiful 9″x12″ book full of photos he shot during his travels. Smyth Sewn with exposed binding and published by Iceland-based ODDI Printing, the book is laid out in a clean, minimalist style, and truly encapsulates the vast grandeur of the West Coast.
