Barnes has spent the bulk of his adult life on the road—traveling across the states to document America’s shrinking fringe groups. He’s hung out with bikers, Bloods, and serpent handlers. Roadbook collects 15 years of his travels in a single place. Using black-and-white film, Barnes takes an intimate look at outsider cultures that have often been misrepresented or simply turned into caricatures by the mainstream. “This is real life,” he says. “Some of those low-rider cats, that is what they make movies about, but these are the real characters.”
