Made in America
This issue reflects on the image of American manufacturing, from the automobile as a symbol of the rise and fall of domestic industry, to how the worker, as subject, has fascinated photographers from Lewis Hine to Lee Friedlander. A series of portfolios by contemporary photographers portray daily life in regional communities, such as Pittsburgh, Buffalo, and other Rust Belt cities. As debates continue about the country’s economic future and the outsourcing of jobs, this issue offers an urgent reflection on photography, economy, and American life.
