In a country as vast and diverse as Canada, the road is symbolic of those things that connect us: our human urges to conquer, to overcome, to appropriate, to build, to make a mark, to communicate, to connect, to carve out territory, and above all, to get somewhere.

In Roads, Mark Schacter uses the powerful medium of photography to explore these stories of human ambition and the desire to create a shared existence among natural landscapes, at once harsh, desolate, and beautiful. Along the journey, he seeks to capture a sense of place, musing on how roads and their landscapes can reveal aspects of the multi-layered and elusive Canadian essence."

Schacter's photographs-taken on, beside, and above roads all across Canada-are poignant and reflective. Depicting scenes of urban intensity, small-town community, and wild grandeur, the photographs included in this striking collection will take the reader on a road trip along the meandering curves of the Canadian sense of self.
