Carol Highsmith is on a journey, one that she says will last for most of the rest of her life.
The DC-based photographer is taking 16 years to visit every single state in the country (all fifty of them) to take more than 100,000 images of life across the United States of America in the early part of the 21st century.
It’s all a part of the This Is America project, which when finished, will donate around 2000 images per state to a permanent collection in the Library of Congress. Each and every picture will be available for use, without any fees or copyrights attached.
And the McFaddin-Ward House will be a part of that collection. On Monday, March 3rd, Highsmith stopped by the museum to take pictures. She spent most of the afternoon setting up and taking down, photographing the outside and inside of the house.
Those photos will be available on the Library of Congress’s website in about three to four months. Highsmith also wrote about the experience here in Southeast Texas on the blog chronicling the project.
