There are thousands of Walmarts across the U.S. that allow overnight parking for cars and RVs. In some cases this had led to the development of whole communities.

Brooklyn writer and photographer Nolan Conway got to know some of these people while living out of his car for three weeks in Walmart parking lots across Arizona, Business Insider Australia reported in a preview of Conway’s work.

“Within a week of being surrounded by these people I became lonely and unhappy. It’s one thing to stay in the Walmart parking lot, but it’s an entirely different experience living there. You can also feel quite vulnerable sleeping in your vehicle,” Nolan wrote via email.

Nolan plans on showing his series, “Waking Up At Walmart,” in galleries soon.
