Between Destinations. An exhibition and book of images taken through and framed by train windows across the United States, from the inside looking out while passing by. The physical journey becomes a metaphor for the psychological one. A review in FAZ, Germany, remarks, “Traveling is dreaming – at least in a train when the monotonous sound of the rolling wheels is gradually carrying the traveler away into a kind of waking coma, and he perceives the landscape flying by as only apparitional: more patches of color than landscapes, more shapes and surfaces than architecture. Candace Gaudiani took photographs out of train windows. Between Destinations is the title of a photo book containing these images: Zwischen den Zielen (German for “Between Destinations”). They have all been taken in the United States. But you wouldn’t want to call the series documentary, because more than showing a country, it depicts a certain kind of perception at the intersection of presentiments and memories – almost as if it were a journey through a life instead of a topography.”
