James Fassinger has spent most of his 23 years in photography walking the streets of big cities and small towns photographing the interesting and often overlooked lives of ordinary people and the places that surround them. He photographs assignment work throughout the United States and continuing his passion for documenting social change sparked by his years photographing abroad, his focus has turned to highlighting social and environmental change and the movements that encompass both these controversial issues. Fassinger is a frequent contributor to The Guardian and Reuters. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, The Times of London, The Daily, The European, The National newspaper, the Czech Lidove Noviny and El Pais of Spain.
