the story of
film americana. 

There are 2.4 billion acres of America out there. The mission is simple for Film Americana: document these lands as much as possible. Jake Peterson, the creator of Film Americana has set out on a mission to document the lands of the country under the format of film. Film helps capture a true scheme of beauty that only it can portray on this country. Collections of photos are added periodically alongside the stories and writings on the images and journey.
