In June, 2013, I attended the Mid Atlantic Power Festival in Ruckersville, VA, during the event, I met the Breeden extended family, and went to document as they prepared and took place at Festival Demolition Derby.

As immigrant, with a strong accent, it impressed me how quick this white collar family warmed up to me, allowing me to take their pictures and even share their food and drinks. It shifted the perspective I had on the idea of rural america. I believe now (2017), more than ever, the distinction should be made between those who voted for Trump for economic shakedown of the country and those who a nationalist sentiments.
