On May 20, 2016, armed with only their cameras, Hoosiers set out to capture the nature of their state and its people—from farmyards to city streets, state parks to suburbs, the familiar to the surprising—and in the process document a rich and diverse culture in the everyday. In these remarkable photographs, Hoosiers reclaim their state and define their identity, visually guiding readers through 24 hours of life in Indiana. Over 140 photographs preserve the wealth of their experiences and the strength of their love for their families, communities, and heritage.

Author Bio

Edited by Indiana University Press


"Other peoples’ lives are never not fascinating, even the routine, mundane moments. With this time capsule of a book, readers will be able to glimpse in great detail what Indiana was doing during the entire 24 hours of May 20, 2016. In the first few years this compilation will seem interesting but not strange. 20 years from now it will be quaint and historic and even more interesting. ‘Oh yeah, nose rings,’ people will say, nostalgically. ‘I’d forgotten about those. And beards. Remember all the beards?’ Children will ask, ‘What are those big red things?’ ‘Those are wooden barns,’ old-timers like us will say. ‘They used to be everywhere.’" —Will Higgins, Indianapolis Star

"Relies on the photographic eyes of hundreds of Hoosiers. "One Day" includes more than 140 pictures snapped by Indiana residents across the state . . . ranging from a front porch in Terre Haute covered in Indy 500 checkered flags to kids playing in the rain by a Parke County covered bridge." —Tribune Star
