Photography book which narrates an intimate relationship between two close friends – Stanislav and H. She is his best friend who has been suffering from an eating disorder for over 15 years, and her journey to her imagined USA is not just a romantic holiday but rather a hopeless attempt to escape the clutches of her struggle. Their personal journey is also inspired by cliché of American dream, Hollywood films or beat and hippie generation. They were hitchhiking, eating wild mushrooms and sleeping under the sky.

This book is (self)published by BFLMPSVZ Publishing, also establish by Stanislav.


Hitchhike US líčí složitý vztah k H. - dívce, která více než dvě dekády čelí PPP, to vše na pozadí dobrodružné cesty po USA, kterou provází poznání i ztráta iluzí a předsudků o americké společnosti, ale i o nás samotných.

Stanislav a H. putovali s krosnou na zádech a stopem během horkého amerického léta. Stopem, autem a autobusem z New Yorku na středozápad, z Montany do Utahu a zase zpátky na východ.
