Our America: A Photographic History

Our America: A Photographic History

We are excited to announce William Scott is one of the artist’s featured in Ken Burns’ new book, “Our America,” released on October 25, 2022.

From one of our most treasured filmmakers, a pictorial history of America – a stunning and moving collection of some of Ken Burns’s favorite photographs, with and introduction by Burns, and an essay by longtime MoMA photography curator Sara Hermanson Meister Burns has been making documentaries about American history for more than four decades, using images to vividly re-create our struggles and successes as a nation and a people. As much as anyone alive today, he understands the should of our country. In Our America, Burns has assembled the images that, for him, best embody nearly two hundred years of the American experiment, taken by some of our most renowned photographers and by others who worked in obscurity. 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.
