America is a relatively young country and perhaps it is the proximity of our "history" that makes us celebrate their past in such interesting ways. Greta Pratt's photographs show how Americans celebrate their nation's past with strong dedication and passion. But rather than just "exhibiting" kids dressed up as confederate soldiers, or the nine Abe Lincolns on a log, Pratt's portraitures give them an air of nobility, or at the least, ask respect for how dedicated they can be and for their very real, albeit sometimes peculiar, passion for their history.
Some photographs are bitingly funny, some are beautiful, but all have something to say, or at least something worthy to show.
A great addition to any photography collection or for anyone fascinated by how strange and wonderful America/Americans can be.
