Family Pictures USA is a television series & transmedia project that explores neighborhoods & cities through the lens of the family photo album. Hosted by Thomas Allen Harris, this public television series enlarges our understanding of history, our diversity, and our shared values.

We started in Detroit where we interviewed hundreds of families and gathered thousands of photographs.

Now, Family Pictures USA is going to Southwest Florida and the Paradise Coast for our second episode! If you have always wanted to be on television and love sharing your family photographs then sign up for one of our local photo-sharing sessions held in October to tell your story.

Call Family Pictures USA at (212) 281-6002 and ask for the “Florida Desk.”


“Once you see America through family pictures, you will never see this country the same way again.”
