OUR OPEN ROAD
What started as a dream and developed into a 12-month plan- is now life on the road. Adam, Emily & Colette Harteau departed California in October 2012 in their VW Westfalia, with the goal of reaching Tierra del Fuego and returning a year later. 5 months in, they decided to embrace a future unknown and the rewards of slow travel. Close to a year and a half in they see no end in sight!
Adam is an artist and finds inspiration in the landscapes and people he meets along the way; photography is presently his main medium, as he captures moments on the road that will be combined with collages, drawings and the like into a new body of work. Emily is a fashion designer and camp chef, currently working on a cookbook. Colette, also known as “the ambassador of love and joy,” enjoys drawing, singing and joining her parents in the crazy adventures along the way. A new member to the family, whom Colette has named “baby spider” will be joining them around June 2014!
Our Open Road will serve as a modern family portrait, as they shed their robes of comfort to reexamine the American Dream, they hope to inspire others to create, eat well, spend quality time together, and adventure into their own great backyards.
