American Dislocation (http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/0,1518,678291,00.html)

Danish Photographer Jacob Holdt spent 5 years exploring the states. This is a set of photos he took during this time. Very interesting photos and a stark and powerful sets. The link leads to the story and to see the photos just click photo gallery. 20 very powerful and interesting photos.

From Spiegel: "He was looking for adventure. But when the young Dane Jacob Holdt arrived in the US in the 1970s, he found a country deeply divided -- and spent the next five years photographing that divergence. His photos, now on display in Braunschweig, show a haunting America"

Caution May Contain Images That May Offend, why I do not know but people are a funny lot.
