About Americans Parade
Americans Parade is a parade of Americans. One after the other, from one community to the next, building up a picture of Americans in the United States in 2016, the year Donald Trump was elected, a year when Americas division have never been more pronounced. I have visited the United States several times over the years and outside of the biggest cities, I would see very little street life and have no reason to stop; I would only know of a place by it’s reputation, it was like the local community was invisible.
George received a BA Honours in Photography, Film and Video Arts from the Polytechnic pf Central London (now the University of Westminster) in 1987 and joined Panos Pictures in 1999.
Over the last decade, George has photographed extensively in the Balkans, Eastern Europe and Turkey, where his work focused on identity and people caught between communities, cultures and ideologies. Preferring to concentrate on long term projects, George spent time living and working in Serbia, Greece and Turkey.
“When you first arrive in a place, you are so informed by images you have already seen that it is a burden you have to lose,” says George when explaining his approach to photography and the time it takes to understand a country and its people.
