A-J Notes

The July edition of American Journal is available online! Enjoy!


We are excited, elated and downright ecstatic to present the work of Gary Gladstone for this month’s feature story.

Gary is a remarkable photographer and writer who offers us excerpts from two of his books, “Passing Gas and Other Towns Along the American Highway” and “Reaching Climax and Other Towns Along the American Highway.”

We are sure you’ll get a kick out of Gary’s work and learn a lot about the nation’s rural culture along the way.


This month’s profile takes us to the beautiful Potomac River for a look at the historical White’s Ferry, the only ferry still in operation on the river.

White’s Ferry shuttles hundreds of vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, commuters and tourists back and forth between Maryland and Virginia every day.


We continue with the series “Aging in Virginia” by Casey Templeton, who was named 2005 College Photographer of the Year by the University of Missouri and recently completed an internship with National Geographic.

This installment of the series documents a class that teaches senior citizens the basics of navigating the Internet.


Wouldn’t you love to be a kid again? Far from responsibility and without a care?

This month’s photo column features a photograph that conjures dreams of swing sets and childhood games.
