Photographer Peter Andrew has travelled the globe taking aerial pictures of the highway interchanges transporting people all over the world, and the resulting photo essay was recently featured by Politico Magazine. The photographs show the interweaving art that infrastructure can create on the natural environment from the grey highway standing out in the orange desert of Phoenix to the intricate complexity of the Highway 401/Allan Rd. This is why it is a virtual law that artful depictions of highway interchanges must happen from above. In the slideshow, photographer Peter Andrew provides a glimpse at U.S. interchanges from a birds eye view, a rich representation of how everyday objects can come to life from a different angle.
