Although the United States of America is a vast land and over populated in some places, there are still remote pockets of land that have been little used or completely deserted and it’s this desolate beauty that photographer Rob Hann captures in his deserted state photography.

Hann is a photographer who says that he has always been captivated by the quiet and remote corners of America that have been cleared out or under populated. Inspired by writers like Jack Kerouac and movies like Paris, Texas, it’s no wonder that Hann took to the United States’ vast deserts to complete his deserted state photography.

Often desolate or populated by only a handful of people, these deserted and under-developed areas are interesting because the rest of America typically has little space left for all of its occupants and it's this unfortunate distinction that creates such a wonderful juxtaposition.
