In 2015, Joe Patronite took to the road to start a long-term photographic essay, a contemporary view of the USA today. Inspired from the great book "The Americans" by Robert Frank (which Patronite had first seen in his 20's as a young newspaper photojournalist), Patronite who has gravitated back to documentary photojournalism in the last decades sought to create a collection of images of life in the USA. This journey, which is continuing today in 2021, has taken Patronite to all corners of the country. Looking for quirky, offbeat, yet normal moments of individuals at play, work, leisure, Patronite has assembled a collection which crosses Secular and Non-secular portions of the society. The selection presented here shows moments at famous landmarks in the USA. Immigrants, new citizens, farm workers, election volunteers, and celebrants at holidays all take their place in our country's core. Patronite has tried to bring to the public a view of many differing ethnicities, religious choices and timely moments reflecting the status of this country now. Again, this project continues.
