Leah Frances has spent the last 10 years photographing America’s diners. Her American Squares, as she called them when she first started sharing her images on Instagram and later, in 2019, in a book of the same name, are “sticky snapshots … with big cars, gleaming diners, neon signs, the open road,” she told In Sight. “[They are] a romantic and idealized mythology of America that I felt was somehow based in the past and which I probably formed through watching too many American movies as a child.”
