Joshua Yospin

Joshua Yospin is a freelance photographer based in Washington, DC focused on editorial and documentary portraiture. The below is from a book project titled "American Patriotism"  targeted for completion after the 2013 presidential inauguration. It's a collection of whimsical, humorous, and often lighthearted symbols of national pride from across the country, but mostly inside the Beltway, where he lives and works as a photographer. Ten years in D.C. has contributed toward his cynicism of our intensely polarized political culture, but it's also a gateway to the huge spectrum of beliefs, attitudes, and people involved in shaping America's hubris.
