The State You’re In


Here’s how the 50 States Project works:

Photographers from each of the United States receive the same 6 assignments throughout the year. The results of each assignment represent both the photographer’s style and their state.

It makes us really think about where we’re from, which we don’t often do. We take it for granted because it’s always been there.

What would you show about your neck of the woods? Would it be what people assume it’s like, or how it really is?

Try some of the assignments yourself (“People” just finished and “Habitat” just started). We’d love to see what you come up with, whether you live in a state, a province, or a sovereign city-state. (We’re looking at you, Monaco.)
