Submission guidelines: We're seeking photographs that capture the look and feel of the United States as seen through the eyes of the people who live here, rather than the stock images seen on postcards and TV backdrops. Landscapes are okay. So are images with people so long as their surroundings are captured. Email photo submissions to whatamericalookslike@gmail.com - doing so affirms that you hold all rights to the submission, and grants us permission to publish your photo at TheAtlantic.com and in any future collection of What America Looks Like photographs.

Be sure to include the city and state where the image is taken, and as detailed a description as you're willing to offer. Also let us know if you've got a photo Web site or a link where a print of your photo is available for purchase.
