18: An American Survey is a long term project focusing on the lives of those in their first year of adulthood. Eighteen was specifically chosen because of the emphasis and importance we as a nation bestow on that age. I strive to photograph and document the voices of people from all walks of life in an effort to show the diversity of the United States of America.
To have the chance for your voice to be heard and get free imagery from a professional photographer.
How to participate?
Contact me - firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work together to schedule a time to do photos and for you to fill out the questionnaire. I have a studio in Atlanta and am also traveling for the project.
Next travel dates: July 27 & 28, 2018 Las Animas County Fairgrounds Trinidad, CO
Each participant will receive the final image either digital or print (your preference) and a copy of the survey.

I grew up in a small ranching community in Southern Colorado. When I was a senior in high school my english teacher, Mrs. Morrow, gave us all a form to fill out. It asked us to imagine our lives ten years from then; where we thought we would be, what we did for a living, what our lives would look like. Now nearly 18 years away from that eighteenth birthday my life is and isn't anything that I expected. I still have the form and treasure it as a mark of who I was and who I am now.
