Good Morning, America (Volume III) is the third in an ongoing series of five books by photographer Mark Power exploring the cultural and physical landscape of the US. When Power began this project in 2012 he could not have predicted the seismic changes wrought by both politics and pandemic on America in this period. This new book, the halfway point for the series, continues the visual chronicle – but under very different circumstances than when he began.
This 10-year project, created as Mark Power meanders across the vast country, is a personal and timely exploration of both the American cultural and physical landscape, and the divergence of reality and myth. The photographs in this series of books are organised neither by geography nor by subject. Good Morning, America (Volume III) continues to draw on photographs made at the beginning of the project in 2012, alongside the more recent photographs shot over the past year.
“For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to explore America, an ambition fueled by a legion of TV shows that crossed the Atlantic in the 1960s. As a young and impressionable child I devoured The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Fugitive, but it was the westerns, evoking a landscape altogether removed from the congested English suburbs surrounding me, that I loved most…I began – although I may not have realised it at the time – to subconsciously search for the America which lived in my imagination, the one generated during childhood, the one that had probably never existed at all.” – Mark Power
