Photo Series of Incredible Home Christmas Displays is a Perfect Encapsulation of Americana

Photographer Danelle Manthey spent ten years traveling across the United States as part of her project (and now book), American Christmas. The series documents home Christmas displays and captures them from the perspective that their creations are examples of modern American folk art.

Manthey photographed, interviewed, and spent time with the creators of these widely diverse displays as part of her project. She found that the creators are entirely self-taught and often do not view themselves as artists. Still, they build incredibly elaborate, site-specific annual installations and Manthey argues that they should be recognized for “their transcendent, highly skilled craft.”
