I love projects like this that take the big mash-mash of being American and break it down. I'm constantly amazed that under one nationality life and people are so different coast to coast. Fifty photographers in fifty states, four projects stretched out over year. The first assignment - People - just went up. The ones that hit me hardest were, of course, the states I have lived in.
I did not understand how Maryland's captured the essence of this great state I live in now. I feel misrepresented.
