What is Interstate Magazine?

Interstate Magazine is an online and in print magazine roughly modeled on this ground-breaking FSA (Farm Security Administration) work. It is intended, in its own small way, to counter the pernicious sociopolitical polarization eroding American society by once again showing America to Americans, revealing the diverse tapestry of American person and place, and in so doing reconnecting all Americans to our shared, collective identity.

What content will I find in Interstate Magazine?

Interstate Magazine is a photographic journal of American identity, so unsurprisingly, you will find a wide array of photographs of American people and places. They depict ordinary Americans and American communities going about their usual routines, and are arranged in separate journals. Each journal focuses on a particular community or region (“Place” journals) or on a specific group, institution or sub-culture across America (“Cross Section” journals). Other journals might focus on individual families or persons as they go about their daily routine, or on a particular stretch of the country across a single line of longitude or latitude, or may depict persons or places through portrait and landscape photographs.
