Mariah Karson’s AMERICAN LEGION documents the photographer’s travels to four American Legion posts in towns with populations under 1,000 to photograph and interview Legionnaires. Between 2014 and 2016, Karson witnessed and explored the lives of Legion members and the impact veterans and posts have on small communities. The project has been compiled into a 252 page hardcover book and gallery exhibition.
