The County Fair

Steven Edson | United States

Marshfield Fair, MA

The County Fair documentary series is about capturing a certain essence of contemporary America, which is also a timeless America. There isn't a more typical American event outside of baseball and American football than those found at various state and county fairs that occur during the summer and early fall seasons in the United States.

I am a documentary photographer based out of Boston Massachusetts.These photographs are about a subculture of the American population. By exploring the fairgrounds, my images hope to capture where the fabric of the American experience is stretched thin and observes the people who come for the thrill of fast rides, to the workers who run the games and food trailers to the farm families who come with the hopes of winning a blue ribbon for their livestock and perfectly grown vegetables and home made jams.

Somewhere in-between the smells of fried foods and barbeque, the sounds of kids shouting, blaring music, flashing lights, the busy midways are filled with people of all ages wandering around looking to be entertained for a few hours with family and friends.
