Our friends at Juxtapoz recently posted a great interview with Todd Blubaugh, author and photographer of the upcoming book Too Far Gone, on their website here. Visit the link to read the interview and check out a gallery of images selected from the book. The piece, which you can also read in their July 2016 issue, digs into Blubaugh’s views on the enlightening nature of cross-country travel, friendship in motorcycle culture, and finding beauty in a breakdown in the middle of Kansas. Juxtapoz also included a great video of Todd filmed in 2013 in which he discusses his two passions, photography and building motorcycles.
Too Far Gone is the photographic and narrative account of Blubaugh’s ride across the US in 2013, undertaken on a ’76 Harley Davidson Shovelhead just weeks after his parents were killed in a car crash. His story explores the bonds of family, contemporary American motorcycle culture, and the deeply transformative nature of travel through photography, short anecdotes, and letters and other artifacts gathered along the way. Too Far Gone will be available in early August 2016 from Gingko Press.
