With just 40 dollars

"With just 40 dollars in his pocket he toured America in 1970’s, documenting both spectrums of American society."

Jacob Holdt, the son of a Danish minister, arrived in the United States in 1970 with the intention of travelling to South America. However, fascinated by the demonstrations against the Vietnam War, Holdt decided to hitchhike across the US. This became a five-year road trip where he met people from all social backgrounds.
