Abstract / Description

Americans has its genesis in an ongoing academic research project examining domestic photography in Europe and America in the latter half of the Twentieth Century. The project has involved assembling an archive currently amounting to over 20,000 amateur slides (and a few prints) from the 1930s to the 1990s. Americans represents some of the best work of some of these unwitting ‘masters’ of photography; photographers who, by luck, happenstance, or joyous accident produced pictures worth seeing outside the family photo album.
