America through Lenses

July 3, 2019

Exhibition

What does Independence day mean to you? Is it the remembrance of the declaration of independence? Or maybe the gruesome battles that led up to liberation from England? Maybe you think about the idea of freedom and liberty for all people in America. This collection of Picto photographer’s depictions of the US capture just a few of the many terrains that make up our beautiful nation. America is rugged, nurturing, and the birthplace of so much creativity and prosperity. Through the lenses of these photographers we see the happiness, the oppression and the possibilities available with every waking moment. Independence day reminds us that anything can be liberated from with enough perseverance and time.
