Americaville is a “Picture Column,” a photographer’s op-ed if you will. I developed the idea for Americaville, while walking 480 miles across Wisconsin for a documentary project: “Along the Yellowstone Trail.” There’s lots of time to think when you are alone on the road. After a lot of other “good” ideas, Americaville became the lone survivor.
Americaville is my take on the places I visit here in the U.S. and the reflection they project upon our American culture. After three long-format documentary projects in the past six years, I wanted to loosen up a bit, leave the constraints of a focused documentary and just make some observations with the camera. I decided to accompany each picture with a short quote which reflects my thoughts when I made the photograph.
I’m still working on long format documentaries and books, however I truly enjoy the freedom Americaville affords me; The ability to connect random pictures which hopefully entertain and instigate reflection. If you like Americaville I’ll post more here on The Huffington Post. You can also see Americaville on the Vantage Magazine of Medium.
