America Lost
Has America lost its grace? What truths do we now hold to be self-evident? Materialism, greed, isolation – are these becoming our new ideologies? What happened to the values that built this country? Are they disappearing with the small towns of America? These photographs shot in rural southern towns personify these questions about the reality of the America we live in today in attempt to answer the ultimate question: Are we going to be okay?
