  • Craig, as always, insightful and thought provoking images.

    In particular, the Florida daycare photo makes me wonder out loud what is going on. I’m sorry for you that you have to witness such scenes!

    Continued good fortune and shooting with the remaining few months of your project.

  • Craig’s work continues to be an inspiration for me. He’s responsible for me ditching my Nikon D3s for a Leica M9 and I’m forever grateful. I’m hoping he finds his way through Indiana as part of this project!

  • When I saw the horse getting up in the snow, I thought about my mare, Paradise. She was my horse for 25 years. It will be 2 years since I had to put her to sleep in a week or so. It has taken nearly two years to begin to become creative again. Slowly I am becoming alive again. I Have never had a friend like her. My writing is coming back, my singing is coming back, and I hope my painting comes back soon. If you send me your email address I will send you a story. I am a friend of Molly Hagen

  • Don-thank you–I caught that image while walking to dinner with a friend. It was actually on the street. The sidewalk is right behind the girls. I have no idea what was going on. Thanks for the well wishes!

  • Hey Don–thank you! That scene was actually outside–I was in the street when I took it, heading for dinner with a friend. The sidewalk was right behind the girls on the stools. I have no idea what was going on! Thanks for the well-wishes:)

  • Jim–so glad I inspire your photography! And it sounds like the M9 is the right tool for you too. If I head through Indiana in the next couple months, I’ll look you up!

  • Hi Craig,

    Congrats for this pack of US snapshots! As I know very well the country, I really appreciated your project. I hope I will be able to be in NYC next year to see some of your pictures at the Leica Gallery. Otherwise, plan an exhibition at the Leica Store here in Paris! 😉

    You mention a 90/2.8 Asph lens among the gears you used… I did not know that one! 😉 Finally, is it the Elmarit, the Summarit or the Summicron ?

  • Hi Craig,

    Congrats for these nice US snapshots! As I know very well the country, I really enjoyed to have this first look at your project. I hope I will be able to be in NYC when your exhibition takes place at the Leica Gallery.

    You evocated an Elmarit-M 90/2.8 ASPH among your gears. I did not know that Asph. version! 😉

  • Bonjour, Vincent–you have a good eye! Apparently that got by us all–you are correct, the 90mm M Elmarit 2.8 I use is not an aspheric lens. Sorry about the confusion! Yes, I hope to see you in NYC for the opening next year–but if not, perhaps we’ll meet in Paris! I will look into it:) cheeers, craig

  • Hey Craig,

    What a nice little teaser on this ongoing project! Some great shots and insights into American life and culture so far – I can hardly wait to see it completed and published. It would have been lovely to see it shown in London sometime after the NYC opening. I’m just saying… 🙂

    Congrats and keep up the good work.

  • Hello Marco,

    Thanks so much for your thoughtful words on the project! I can hardly wait to see it completed and published too:) And I think London is a wonderful idea–I’ll get to work on it!:)

    cheers,

    craig
