Our America : a photographic history  Cover Image Book Book

Our America : a photographic history / Ken Burns with Susanna Steisel, Brian Lee, and David Blistein ; [foreword by Sarah Hermanson Meister].


"From one of our most treasured filmmakers, a pictorial history of America—a stunning and moving collection of Ken Burns's favorite photographs with an essay by longtime MoMA photography curator Sarah Hermanson Meister. Burns has assembled the images that, for him, best embody nearly two hundred years of the American experiment. We see America’s vast natural beauty as well as its dynamic cities and communities. There are striking images of war and civil conflict, and of communities drawing together across lines of race and class. Our greatest leaders appear alongside regular folks living their everyday lives. The photos talk to one another across boundaries and decades and, taken together, they capture the impossibly rich and diverse perspectives and places that comprise the American experience. -- Provided by publisher.
