100 Cameras100 Cameras project to capture the American life : 100 Cameras is about to embark on a unique journey encompassing thousands of miles of road, a hundred cameras, a bunch of photographers and many, many rolls of film. The Seattle-based group has turned their joint fascination with cameras and road trips into a medium-spanning project that seeks to capture the image and essence of the American life that dwells next door, up the street and a hundred miles down the road. Photographs allow us to see and reflect on the past, be it our own, our family’s, or our country’s. 100 Cameras has collected machines that reflect the different phases in American history, echoing the aesthetics and technical innovation of various eras.
100 Cameras project to capture the American life100 Cameras - American landscape
From the earliest cameras developed for amateurs and children to the pop culture defining Polaroid of the 60’s and 70’s, to the cell phone cameras of the new millennium, the design, marketing and subsequent embracement of photo-graphy as our culture’s mirror is a fascinating metaphor for the American landscape. Talent from the entire country was gathered by 100 cameras

100 Cameras - Talented shooters
100 Cameras has already signed 15 of 75 professional photographers who will be invited to show how these diverse machines see America differently. Some of these talented shooters include: Fred Licht of Los Angeles, Donna Day, and Jimmy Clarke, of Seattle; and widely published Day-in-the-Life-Of photographer Forest McMullin, of Rochester, New York.

100 Cameras - 3 Three months excursions
100 Cameras’ jaunt across America will be broken into three, three month excursions, and will include small towns and big cities, giving those 75 professional photographers, amateur shooters they come across and everyday lovers of photography alike, a chance to capture the people and places of the amazing and varied country in which we live. The tangible results of this mother-of-all-road trips will span mediums, including photographs, music and film. The centerpiece will be a comprehensive book that will offer something for anyone interested in photography, cultural anthropology, or the American road.

100 Cameras - Highlights will include
- A history of each camera, including related packaging and advertising
- Images captured on the road by each camera
- A travel log documenting the circumstances of each image
- Personal musings from various sources, including the photographer and subject
- Personal histories attached to the camera itself.
