Foreword by David Muir.
Published to coincide with the 124th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty's dedication to the American public, this celebration of the American melting pot, American Portraits, is similarly inspired by the ideals of freedom and hope embodied in our beloved monument.
In this extraordinary collection of portraits, photographer Michael Clinton captures the diverse faces that make up the American mosaic. Together, the Americans in these photographs trace their ancestry to 100 different countries. Spending two years searching for citizens of widespread and varied ancestries, Clinton recorded personal journeys along the way, reminding him each time of what America stands for and making him prouder than ever to call himself American.Michael Clinton
