The Draw America Project

During the summer of 2013 Yaron Dotan criss-crossed the United States stopping passersby from all walks of life to sit for a roadside portrait. Instead of simply snapping a picture and moving on, he sat with his subjects for up to an hour of animated conversation. This energy was infused into his signature white-out and marker drawings.

In the road trip tradition particular to America, Yaron, along with filmmaker Amelia Green-Dove, hit the road set on discovering the country on their own terms, and understanding this moment in history.
