About AAJ

We at All American Journal

believe that Americans, in all our diversity, are more fundamentally alike than we are different; that within each of us live the same hopes and dreams.  And we believe our publication should be a reflection of the uniquely American history and heritage that we all share.

Our goal is to show a side of life that many Americans might otherwise never see; to look past the things that divide us, and discover those common threads that bring us together as a nation, and as a people.

Every picture tells a story.

Some of these stories are simple and lighthearted.  Others are infinitely complex and filled with emotion.  But each one is an important part of the lives of the people who shared these experiences.

All American Journal brings you a glimpse into the lives of everyday Americans, their personal experiences, and their inspirational stories, through the eyes and lenses of photographers and photojournalists who have been fortunate enough to be a part of these stories.

We hope you enjoy them.
