In the course of his extraordinary career as a photo-journalist, Eugene Richards has seen many faces of America. From years of poignant, often riveting and sometimes controversial reporting, both on and off assignment, comes Americans We. In turn tender, funny, disturbing, and sublime, Richards's photographs and writing cohere like poetic verse. His talent for rendering the very essence of contemporary life has never before been so discernable, whether depicting a Memorial Day parade, the birth of a child, an inmate on death row, or a farm couple threatened with foreclosure.
