about

The United States of America with National Geographic
A grand tour of the USA through the magazine's rich archives

Travel through time and across the country with this state-by-state tour of the United States over the past 100 years. Following on from the critically acclaimed National Geographic: Around the World in 125 Years, the volume brings together more than 700 captivating images from the magazine’s illustrious archives to chart a century of change and growth from Alabama to Wyoming.

State by state, these remarkable images bring a vivid account of a vast, evolving, and diverse North America, from breathtaking landscapes to advancing industry, evocative rural life to burgeoning towns and cities. We travel from the ski slopes of Colorado to the jazz bars of New Orleans, from the luxurious Hollywood hills to a barbershop in Kentucky, and from Manhattan’s Chinatown to a river baptism in Mississippi. Along the way, the tour takes in the gamut of photographic evolution, shifting from early black-and-white and autochrome images of the 1920s and 1930s into midcentury Kodachrome, then the harder-edged reportage of the 1970s and 1980s, and finally the digital images of the 1990s through to the present.

With an introductory essay by photography editor David Walker, as well as prefaces to each state section and fascinating storytelling captions, this book celebrates not only the world’s greatest photography magazine but also the people, history, and beauty of the United States in all its kaleidoscopic glory.
Reuel Golden Hughes was the editor of The British Journal of Photography for more than 6 years.
