“My Americana” is a long-term photography essay. Its goal: create a contemporary view of the people, places or happenings which depicts The United States of America. What defines this country? Patriotism, free speech, and choices of religious practices all are undercurrents in this essay.
A record of the political process is vital, with the chasm of opposing doctrine bordering on fanaticism, a visual documentation on the issue is vitally important to the final collection.
The images here deal with race, political upheaval, social separation, underlying racism & hopelessness in the USA today.
