The Good Citizen

The Good Citizen explores how American society came to be what it is today. Over a period of eight years, photographer Benjamin Rasmussen travelled to 43 states and was introduced to over 500 people as he investigated the impact of the country’s complex history on contemporary society. In this new book, Rasmussen’s photographs are combined with essays by Frank H. Wu­ and collectively they seek to provoke thought and conversation around the complicated nature of American identity.

‘Who was freely invited into this space and who wasn’t? In what ways are the ripples of our past seen in our present? How can we engage more honestly with our history?’  Benjamin Rasmussen

Cold War Cowboy Newspaper

Dean Reed was the most famous American in the Communist World. An actor, director and pop icon, he was ridiculed in the West and idolized in the East. Cold War Cowboy uses archival and contemporary images, along with news accounts, letters and interviews, to tell the story of a naïve ideologue who was used by both sides of a global conflict.
