States of the Union: 2008 – 2016
50 states in 50 images of America throughout the Obama administration
Covering the period of President Obama’s administration (2008-2016), we present a portrait of life in the United States, as captured by Magnum photographers. This slideshow paints an authored portrait of everyday life, from prosaic acts like travelling to work, to ceremonial gestures of patriotism. From the urban hustle to the expansive rural plains, Magnum Photographs capture vignettes of the previous eight years across all of America’s 50 states.
