Matthew Jordan Smith’s repertoire as a commercial and fashion photographer is well known around the world. Yet, he chose to work on a personal project that took him to all 50 states.
The project involved visiting with 100 families across the USA. He photographed children outdoors, holding up signs with their ambitions and ideas to lead their country. It’s a project that took him 3 years to complete. After pouring his own resources into the project to start photographing children in America, Smith ran a successful Kickstarter campaign. He now has published a book that is every bit inspiring as his own journey through these united states.
I managed to corner Matthew to a quick Skype interview. Give it a listen. You can buy the book here.
You’ll find below a slideshow with about 15 of Matthew’s images from the book, Future American President.
