The Land of the Soda Pop and the Home of the Peanut Butter is our first feature from Swedish photographer Hannes Mörk. Shot entirely on film, the series documents a roadtrip that Hannes took last summer together with a group of friends along the West Coast of the United States.

“The zine/story is a full on romanticism of the American dream. Growing up in Sweden we’ve been brought up with that dream, and I wanted to shoot that dream however true or false it might be. My perception of America is darker than what the zine illustrates, especially considering the events of last year. I made this zine to battle the hopelessness felt after a year dominated by police brutality, political fear-mongering and xenophobia. For me, and hopefully for everyone that shares my feeling of hopelessness, these pictures work as a reminder of all the beauty pushed to the corner of the world by loud anger. As a reminder that the world is green, beautiful, fresh, blue, tasty, orange, bright, and full of adventures worth living for”.
