Friends, Advisors, Whisperers, Contributors...
When I first knew I needed to do this, I was not sure how to start. After many conversations with my creative friends and a lot of encouragement, I started talking to people and shooting the conversations on video. I realized that this project is organic and grows as it continues. I have over 80 conversations from 16 states so far. It will have a conclusion and will be documented, perhaps not like we have seen before. I must thank everyone who talked to me on camera, and those who helped me so far. 2019 promises to be full of discoveries and conversations as politics and our media continues to provide new material. We are in historic times.

This project started in december 2016 when i realized i did not recognize my own country. i decided after talking to others who shared this feeling, that i needed to do something to better understand who the american people are today. there is a little nostalgia about american road trips, and the classic writings and photographs of the american people. This might be considered an updated version. clearly a lot of people have something to say.
