LIFE & WORK
PhotographsAmerica.com's highest-quality 16"x20" prints, on the finest photographic paper, representing the best of 30 years of unforgettable images by renowned photographer Carol M. Highsmith, were produced in every state, every major city, nearly all our national parks and great battlefields, smaller cities and towns and crossroads, and across our unforgettable landscape. And her associate, photographer Brendan Reals, contributes stunning photographs from the nation's wildest, highest, and most remote places.
PhotographsAmerica.com also offers thousands of nostalgic vintage photographs explicitly selected from the treasured Library of Congress Collection. They include irreplaceable glimpses of earlier times; captivating circus, Depression-era, and theater posters; and extraordinary color "photochromes" from the turn of the 20th Century. These were wonderful black-and-white images that were artistically colorized and turned into the world's first, beloved color postcards. The staff at PhotographsAmerica.com has meticulously restored all of our vintage images to minimize imperfections and the degradations of time.
America is not only about the places we live and the things we build. It's also about the work we do and the diversions we seek when the work is done. Life & Work captures moments on the job and away from it and highlights some of the industries and activities that set our nation apart. This category also features a close-up look at the faces of many famous and ordinary Americans, and a generous sampling of vintage photographs that illustrates the ways in which we lived and worked in generations past. We even set aside a subcategory for the animals who make our lives better and more enjoyable.
