In May of this year, Magnum Photos sent five photographers and a writer on a two-week road trip from San Antonio, Texas to Oakland, California. The photographers – Susan Meisalas, Alec Soth, Paolo Pellegrin, Jim Goldberg, and Mikhael Subotzky – boarded the Magnum bus and emerged to record America in all its myriad forms, from the lost to the found and everything in between.
Blurb was one of the trip’s sponsors and we were thrilled that Blurb Mobile, our new iPhone® app, was along for the ride. Take a look at the Blurb Mobile stories created by Susan Meisalas and Alec Soth. One chronicles the making of a photograph while the other highlights a family met on the road. The fact that each story is so unique is exactly what is so cool about Blurb Mobile. It lets you record and share stories in the moment and on the go—no matter where your travels take you and what your story is.
