aCurator contributing photographer* John Mireles recently embarked upon a journey to begin capturing the current face of America in intimate portraits. John has now completed the West Coast and will soon set off on a three-month cross-country road trip to complete the project.
In the meantime, Mireles brought the portraits live and large to his own neighborhood - check out the dedicated Neighbors website and you can watch Mireles talk about the series in his home town of San Diego in "Good Fences Make Good Neighbors"
