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.
The rumors of the demise of American manufacturing are greatly exaggerated. 2015-10-12-1444691111-5803410-3858.jpg © Provided by The Huffington Post 2015-10-12-1444691111-5803410-3858.jpg

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.
