One World. One Family.

“Once you see America through family pictures, you will never see this country the same way again.”


Family Pictures USA journeys through a rapidly changing landscape where the hallmarks of a familiar and idealized “America” are being transformed. From the streets of Detroit, to the shores of Southwest Florida, to the farm fields of North Carolina, we are creating a new purpose for the family photo album…as an integral part of our collective social and cultural history.

Host Thomas Allen Harris guides the show’s participants as they are reacquainted with relatives and old friends, introducing fascinating characters to our collective consciousness and discovering surprising connections along the journey.

Family Pictures USA wants to revitalize and highlight the rich history through the help of local families and the community. Share your photographs and the stories behind them with us to be part of a bigger narrative building an inclusive national Family Album.
