“In The Car With R” is Rafał Milach was designed by Ania Nalecka (Tapir Book Design) and published by Czytelnia Sztuki Gallery.
The book has a very innovative and beautiful design and manages to arrange the different photo formats and texts skillfully. It definitely gives a very intimate feeling to it, which supports the story as a personal road diary.
Rafał Milach teamed up with the Icelandic writer Huldar Breiðfjörð, and together they took the highway #1, the only road surrounding Iceland and drove 1450km within 10 days.

Yaakov Israel’s “The Quest for the Man on the White Donkey” published by Schilt Publishing, is a road-trip journey about the social history of Israel.
While the background and context of this work is necessarily of a highly political nature, the path Israel follows is of a more mundane, personal, and poetically meditative tone, giving his images descriptive philosophical access to questions about land and history. - Winston Riley’s review on photoeye

“I wasn’t informed by anything but my personal history, experience and understanding of my country. I can say that in the last 10 years I bumped into many extremely nice and helpful people from all origins, nationalities and political backgrounds, these encounters with people and places are very much at the core of this project.” - Yaakov Israel (the entire interview on Lenscratch)

Some(w)here by Andres Gonzalez is about a journey in the most concrete and abstract sense of the word. The photographs were taken in different locations around the world as varied as Norway, Ukraine, Namibia, and Mexico.
Through the help of Kickstarter, Andres Gonzalez was able to self publish his book, which was deigned by award winning Dutch designer Sybren Kuiper (-SYB-).
“I enjoy wandering, losing my way, daydreaming. It’s a matter of getting into a certain state of mind, where the distinction between the obvious and the extraordinary starts to blur. I think the tension you feel comes from not knowing which reading takes priority. I like my images to linger in that space between the literal and the metaphorical.” - Andres Gonzalez

Elementary Calculus, through a series of portraits, landscapes and still life photographs, observes the publicly private moments of these peregrine foreigners as they attempt to connect back to their homes. In his documentation of migrants and refugees in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Carrier explores the distance between reality and desire – the want for what was and the hope for what will be – and traces the manner in which we navigate the points between the unknowns. - mackbooks.co.uk
I highly recommend the piece on The Great Leap Sideways on Elementary Calculus and also the reviews by Adam Bell and Vince Leo.
