Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

Venue, a roving editorial body from BLDGBLOG founder Geoff Manaugh and Nicola Twilley of Edible Geography, is nearing the end of a 16-month tour. Since last June the team has traveled around North America with a specially designed, lightweight cinéma vérité tripod rig, conducting interviews and photographing out-of-the-way places. The team has visited the U.S. military's simulated battlefields, been on set with costume designers at Spectral Motion, shot the field where NASA rehearsed the moon landing, and even made music in a cave in Virginia.

Check out some of Venue photos below, and keep an eye out for the final stories from the trip.
