Based on the popular and revolutionary PBS documentary series and website, American Portrait: The Story of Us, Told by Us is an inspiring and enriching photographic portrait of the year 2020 in America. Gathered directly from Americans and presented through the themes of family, work, fun, faith, and community, the book is full of vivid yet nuanced snapshots of who we are. This visually striking companion volume features more than 400 entries and photographs, all which began with an answer to a simple cue.
