Ach, Ami­land!

Another way of looking at the most photographed country in the world is «Oh, Amiland!» the longtime USA correspondent and today's “10vor10” presenter Arthur Honegger and his wife, the photographer Henna Honegger. The authors of the photo book of the same name lived in the USA for eight years. They captured moments that show an unfiltered America: moments that tell whole stories. The two show a selection of their recordings, report on how they were created and explain what is typically American about these pictures. There is also enough time for the audience to answer questions about the United States, photography and life in New York and Washington.
