The 50 States Project has brought together 50 photographers from across the USA.

Each photographer lives in one of the 50 States and during the year long project each photographer will represent the State where they currently live. Every two months each photographer will be sent an assignment by e-mail, they then have two months to produce one image in response. The images must represent both their style and their State.

The first assignment, (“People”), was sent on 2nd January 2009. Please click here for the ‘people’ images. The second, (“Habitat”), was sent on 1st March 2009. Please click here for the ‘habitat’ images. The third, (“Landscape”), on 1st May. Please click here for the ‘landscape’ images. The fourth, (“Industry”) on 1st July. Please click here for the ‘industry’ images.The fifth (“Entertainment”) on 1st September. Please click here for the ‘entertainment’ images.

By the end of the project there will be 300 images which hopefully represent the talent of the photographers involved and have something to say about the USA today.
