Synopsis: Visions of America addresses a single question: How do you photograph democracy? After all, democracy is an idea; and not something one can easily wrap one's lens around. But photographing democracy is indeed what Joseph Sohm has done in this epic journey across the fifty states. To capture this country's incredible diversity, Sohm frames his national work as George Seurat might a pointillist painting. With each photograph, an individual dot was applied to his American canvas. Spanning three decades, tens of thousands of images were assembled in what becomes a compelling mosaic. With a foreword by legendary travel writer, Paul Theroux, and lyrics by two of America's most distinguished songwriters, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Visions of America is a work of historic value and significance. Visions of America is a perceptive work about both the photographer and the photographed. Reflecting on the wisdom of the founders, coupled with personal observations about American history, Sohm takes us on an insightful journey down the back roads and byways of the U.S, ultimately leading to a deeper understanding and appreciation of who we are as a nation and a people. Visions of America is a sweeping portrait of life in the American democracy, a portrait that shows us US, the United States. Edited by Rick Benzel and Patricia Emory.

About the Author: Joseph Sohm is an American history teacher turned photo-historian. Over the course of 30 years, he has traveled throughout the United States and across the world, photographing people, celebrations, monuments, sports, cities, small towns and presidential campaigns. His photos have been published more than 50,000 times in such publications as National Geographic, Time, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and in hundreds of textbooks, as well as on media including CNN, ABC, The History Channel and MSNBC. His work is featured in President Clinton's book My Life and in his Presidential Library. Sohm's images are featured in Frederick J. Ryan's portrait of Ronald Reagan, The Great Communicator; on Bill Maher's Real Time; in Al Gore's Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth; in NBC's memorial for 9/11, Concert for America; on the Today Show, and on the cover of John Grisham's novel King of Torts. His photograph was chosen for both the covers of Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report for the contested 2000 Presidential Election. The U.S. Department of State displays his work in more than ten embassies worldwide. Sohm produced the official 1993 Presidential Inaugural music-video for MTV, which aired worldwide. He has been a keynote speaker at more than 100 colleges, universities and trade associations across America. Both he and his work have been profiled in Esquire magazine, USA Today, the LA Times, The New York Times, The San Francisco Examiner, C-Span, Lexus magazine and the NEWSEUM Museum in Washington, DC. Sohm also serves on the boards of The Museum of Democracy in New York City and the New West Symphony in Southern California.
