Welcome to Americana Images

logoAmericana Images an online archive of North American photographs that were taken by British photographer Scott Wishart between 1992 and 2002. Scott first visited the United States and Canada as a boy, returning a number of years later in 1992 during a gap year between art college and university. Over the next ten years he became addicted to road trips, often spending months at a time driving the length and breadth the continent in hired pickup trucks or travelling on Greyhound buses. During this period he produced a vast body of work that subsequently became his ‘signature’ when approaching newspapers and magazines for commissions.

In 1998 he sold his first image to Harper Collins for a book cover; Peter Hedges’ An Ocean in Iowa, and discovered he could fund future trips by similar means.

Although Scott has not returned to the North American continent since 2002, he continues to freelance as a photojournalist all over the UK and Europe.
