There's No Place Like Nome- Magnum Photos

Magnum Photos -

As a photographer, I’ve never felt comfortable photographing outside my culture. When I’ve photographed in places like Beijing or Bogota, I feel like an invader or a fraud. While Nome feels as exotic to me as any foreign city, I’m also aware that it is a deeply American place created by outsiders for outsiders. This isn’t to say I ever once felt comfortable there. But it does feel like a place in which I could disappear.
