Lisa Guerriero and her family emigrated from Canada to the suburbs of Los Angeles in the early 70s. Immediately after high school, she began working in the movie and television industry as a Camera Assistant. Four years ago, she decided to shift gears, leaving the industry and concentrating solely on her photography.
While traversing the country by train, in 2013, in search of old diners, motels, and fading remnants of Americana, she began meeting the people who lived and worked in the surrounding neighborhoods. Many were low-income communities in the Rust Belt region, still feeling the effects of deindustrialization. She felt it was important to share these people's stories, and began her ongoing documentary project, "On the Road to Nowhere". She now spends every summer driving through the Midwest, capturing the facets of life in what was once small-town America.
