and hit the road. For the last two years, I've been put 80 thousand
miles on my camper traveling around North America. Along the way, I've
met fellow travelers exploring in campers of every shape and size.
Their vehicles aren't the end-all-be-all's but enablers of lifestyles.
Each one reflects their specific interests. Their stories and vehicles
inspired me and I started documenting them with the #vanlife tag on Instagram. This tag spun off into a photo project and now I am raising money to
publish a photo book documenting some of my favorite campers that I've
seen in the last two years and stories from the road. "

"Christopher Pillitz has seen the world. His reportage and finely wrought
image series have been produced in over seventy countries and are
published in the globe’s largest magazines. With his eight monographs
and numerous international exhibitions, Pillitz counts among the last

documentary color photographs, which, however, exceed the boundaries of
pure representation. Thus the works become an atmospherically dense
allegory of a life pervaded by the wisdom of the Far East.
Pillitz is not only an attentive observer of the world; he is also a
master of staged photography. He feels particularly connected to the
culture of his homeland. The Argentinean calls his picture story from
Buenos Aires The Spirit of Tango.
He sets his stage in a neighborhood of charm and character. The lively
actors have well-known names: ballerina Barbara Bertone and dance Oscar
Velazquez classically court one another, while a perfectly polished 1948
Alfa Romeo Freccia D’Oro serves as the classy backdrop to the amorous
