American Legion

AMERICAN LEGION documents four American Legion posts in towns with populations under 1,000 to photograph and interview Legionnaires. Between 2014 and 2016, I witnessed and explored the lives of Legion members and the impact veterans and posts have on small communities. The project has been compiled into a 252 page hardcover book and gallery exhibition.
