Visions of America: Photographing Democracy Joseph Sohm talked about his book Visions of America: Photographing Democracy, published by Visions of America. Joseph Sohm talked about his life and career as a “photohistorian.” He talked about his photographs - collected over 30 years from all fifty states - that depict different aspects of American democracy. He talked about the process of taking a picture of an intangible concept such as "democracy", stories behind some of his choice pictures, and the importance of critically studying one’s environment. Following his remarks, he answered questions from members of the audience.
