With her project, “Imag[in]ing America,” Texas-based photographer and educator Jennifer Garza-Cuen explores the crossing point among identity and place.

Catalogued by location, the pictures in “Imag[in]ing America” are an investigation into American public, regional, and local personalities.

What is it that makes us ‘of’ a place? As a former American expatriate and one who has lived my adult life essentially placeless this is a central question in my work. In my ongoing project Imag[in]ing America, I am interested in investigating national, regional, and local identities as well as ideas of otherness as they relate to place and documentary photography in America.
