A woman walks across an old steel pedestrian bridge in Hazelwood, Pa. The bridge has been used for decades to cross over the railroad tracks that was built by B. F. Jones, of the Pittsburgh and Connellsville Railroad and later of Jones and Laughlin Steel Company. Jones built the rail line with respect to the resident’s concerns of maintaining the river’s aesthetic value. The railroad would later split Hazelwood into two sections, coining the local term ‘below the tracks’

Outreach and Collaboration

America Storytelling Grant

American Reportage will offer an annual grant to further a documentary project by a visual journalism student or recent graduate that focuses on issues facing the people of the United States.

The America Storytelling Grant will be announced in October 2017.

Group Projects

Because of the racial, ethnic and political diversity of the United States, different regions of the country sometimes reflect diametrically opposed ideas about the issues that face its population.

Due to the geographic diversity of its members, American Reportage is uniquely positioned to tackle large-scale projects across the United States that can document these differences and better illustrate the overall story.

American Reportage is a one stop shop for publications or organizations requiring images or video from different regions of the country relating to a single theme.



Education Outreach

American Reportage takes an active role in building awareness to the issues we report on first-hand as journalists.

Our members are available for presentations and lectures on topics we cover in the field. If your organization or school is interested in having one of our journalists as a guest speaker, please contact them directly.

You can support our education outreach efforts by making a tax-deductible donation through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas.



In conjunction with some of the best photojournalism programs in the United States, American Reportage supports the advancement of emerging visual journalists through an associate member sponsorship to the collective for students that demonstrate dedication to long-term projects and possess a strong eye for visual storytelling.

Each year, the collective accepts three students to join the collective as associates to mentor them in their project development, editing and career building.

Associates will have space on this site to display their stories and the collective will promote their work to editors for possible publication.
