Photographer Lucy Laucht got married on a Friday. By Monday, their Manhattan apartment was completely packed up, and she and her husband set off on a new nomadic life: just them, their tiny vintage van and the open road. Laucht took photos of everything they encountered on the road for the next several months (beautiful landscapes, interesting people and tiny towns in the middle of nowhere) and posted them to Instagram, where her side hobby quickly grew into a successful career (and even brands like Amazon came calling).
Watch this video and hear her story, from what it’s like to live on the road to the one thing she always travels with. (Hint: It’s a part of her British upbringing that she’ll never let go.)
