What is it that ties us to the state where we currently live and adopt it as the one we're "from"? How does living in our states define us? States of America is a series of short documentaries--one from each of our 50 states--that ask these questions by featuring everyday people as diverse as the landscape in the places they call home.
Living on an island in the Mississippi River has always drawn Kathy to seek inspiration and peace from its banks. Despite thinking adulthood would take her far from her small town home she grasps life as an explorer here, finding hidden charms and meaning at every turn. Photography and preservation allow her to weave each new experience into a fresh perspective.
