American Culture

1900 -1949

Upon opening this time capsule in 2055, future generations will find photographs that represent the American core values from the latter half of the Twentieth Century--1950 through 2000s. These images represent specific aspects of American culture which demonstrated that our core values remained the same even though the expression of them changed with the passage of time. Although the ways that our world changed is quite amazing, what’s even more astounding is the ways in which it stayed the same. It would seem that there are a few truths that are timeless.
