USA Network Character Project

USA Network did this awesome project where they sent awesome photographers out to America to photograph awesome people.

From the website:
Character Project is USA Network's ongoing artistic initiative to celebrate the extraordinary people, from all walks of life, who make this country unique. Inspired by USA's iconic "Characters Welcome" brand, and with the support of the not-for-profit photography organization Aperture Foundation, USA assembled a team of 11 world-class photographers during the summer of 2008 to capture the character of America.
