Photographer Alejandro Mejia is exploring American pride in a seductive way. With model Alexandra Ghantous as the star of this story, she poses in a biker tank top, cut off jeans and combat boots, waiting for a ride beside her broken-down truck.
The photo shoot features iconic American elements, the long, winding roads of the country, a F.D.N.Y. truck and of course, a giant American flag. The model holds up the stars and stripes and lets the wind wave it proudly while hitchhiking. Alejandro Mejia takes a more seductive approach to hitchhiking by using a beautiful model, dressed for the heat of summer.
The series features photographs in black and white and they contrast starkly against the vibrant colored images. The red truck, blue sky, and blue denim shorts are key details that symbolize the beauty of the United States as they tribute the bright colors of the flag.
