They are on the move across the United States, and sometimes the world, catching rides wherever they can, by freight train or by car, living by their own set of rules. They are known as Travelers, people who call the open road their home, guided by wanderlust. Boston photographer Michael Joseph has devoted nearly six years of his life to documenting Travelers through intimate portraiture.
Joseph calls his series, Lost and Found, “an American project.” The heritage of the Traveler stretches back to the Dirty Thirties, to the Dust Bowl migration and to the tenant farmers who left their lives behind in search of something better.
