This week we present our final update for 2011, a suite of diverse images taken along our journeys this year on the American road. We feel that these photographs speak to the heart of this moment in our country.
2011 has been a whirlwind year for Facing Change, as we have seen our dream and small initiative develop into a fully functioning project. We’ve been in the field, focusing on quintessential American stories including the continuing economic crisis, migrant workers, homeless children, historical landscapes, agriculture, the ongoing “Occupy” movement, and many others.
Our friends and supporters including the Library of Congress, Leica Camera, the Open Society Foundations, PhotoShelter, German GEO and individuals like you have all played critical roles in supporting our work and bringing it to larger audiences. We would also like to thank all of you for your attention and engagement.
Looking forward to 2012, Facing Change is proud to have continued support from our current friends and from new ones on the way. We have powerful new stories to offer in early January and well into the year.
Beyond new production, we are working to enhance this website to make it interactive for greater participation and personal involvement. We are also looking to develop a place for contributors’ work — your voices — as many photographers have sent in powerful ideas and images that we would be honored to present on: The Public Sphere.
If you’ve appreciated the photographs and stories we’ve been able to bring to you, please consider a tax deductible donation to our efforts:
Warmest regards for the new year,
All of us at Facing Change: Documenting America
