In March 2015, Alec Soth traveled across the country with English singer-songwriter Billy Bragg. Bragg was recording a new album of songs that would reflect the railroad’s impact on the nation’s social and cultural life, while Soth photographed the musician and created a visual diary of the journey. The resulting images make up Soth’s contribution to our One Picture Book Two series, If You Want to Ride You Gotta Ride It Like You Find It.
