Lost Highway Expedition Photobook is a selection of over 500 captioned photographs by 31 participants in the Lost Highway Expedition, which took place during August 2006 through the emerging capitals of the Western Balkans. The book’s aim is to demonstrate the transitions and different speeds of recent urbanization that are challenging nine major cities in the Western Balkans.

The photobook is divided into sections, one for each of the nine cities and for each journey in between, and thus chronicles each day of the expedition from a multitude of mobile views. Text appears in the form of brief captions contributed by the editors and editorial board members. This results in an in-depth visual document of the Western Balkans with a focus on the present state of urban- and highway-scapes which provide a glimpse of the future of the visual and spatial makeup of this part of Europe.

The photobook is co-published by Centrala Foundation for Future Cities, School of Missing Studies and Skuc Gallery and is part of the project Europe Lost and Found.
