"A Matter of Time - Route 66 through the Lens of Change," Ellen Klinkel's first photo book, will be published by the University of Oklahoma Press on October 10. She worked on the book for a good four years with her American co-author and historian Nick Gerlich, who wrote the English-language texts for the 176 black-and-white photographs shown in the book.
"A Matter of Time", following the road from Chicago in the east to Santa Monica on the Pacific Ocean, shows both "lost" places and the upswing the legendary Route 66 is currently experiencing.
During her first journey on Route 66 in 2013, Ellen discovered her passion for photography, which she has not let go of since. In 2015, she started a German-language Route 66 blog with her husband Udo (https://route66-america.com/). In 2016 Ellen's first exhibition followed as part of the 1st European Route 66 Festival in Ofterdingen.
A German book on Route 66 is also planned.
Further information can be found on the publisher's website: https://www.oupress.com/books/15234128/a-matter-of-time; many photographs of Ellen and Udo at www.klinkel-photography.com.
The book can be pre-ordered online.
