1. America from bottom to top.

    Ameressence is a project documenting a year-long journey from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska, covering all 15,000 miles of the Americas.

    The plan is to begin at the southern tip of Argentina and journey north, creating an illustrated story every week for a year. The project is the joint effort of a writer and a photographer, both based in Berlin, who plan to collaborate on each dispatch in words and images and publish the results in three languages.

    Over the course of 2013, this adventurous duo hopes to explore the many cultures and environments of the Americas while bringing backers along for the ride. Sounds like all of the breathtaking vistas and poignant moments with none of the 17-hour bus rides!
