An ambitious photographic journey to major American landmarks, baring my rear and making a twelve month calendar to show for it.

American Ass is an ambitious project to travel to major American landmarks and photograph myself, the dreamer/traveler/subject matter, standing in the nude in the foreground--and making an ass out of myself at the same time.

I began this journey at Crater Lake, Oregon, and have since taken a few photographs in other less familiar locations. Looking forward, I hope to travel to such notable sites as the Grand Canyon, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Old Faithful to gather more material.

The end result will be a twelve month long calendar featuring one of these photographs for each month, and to make for a memorable year for the consumers and fans. In addition, this will prime me for a future project involving world renowned destinations, all while being subtle and respectful of local culture despite my daring goal, just as I'm doing this time around.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The most obvious challenge in this project is showing discretion--trying to capture that perfect photo without causing widespread pandemonium and shocking other tourists. My approach is strategic selection of my positioning and timing in order to preclude any risk of offending my fellow man and woman.
