In Focus, The Atlantic's long-running photo series, is focusing on US States this year. Every week will bring a photo set for a new state.

Published so far:
Wyoming: The Equality State
Georgia: The Peach State
Indiana: The Hoosier State
Hawaii: The Aloha State

New photo sets will come out once a week, and The Atlantic has a five free articles per month policy without becoming a subscriber, so you can stay up to date on all states without subscribing if you so choose.

Thanks for posting about this! I'll be back to see more states as the year goes on. I lived in Wyoming for a year and these pictures actually made me a bit homesick for it. Such a beautiful place, but such a wrong wrong place for me to be.

One thing these four VERY different states have in common: pictures of horses. I guess one just can't resist pictures of our majestic equine friends on the beach, in the mountains, on the streets pulling a wagon, in the pasture...I can't complain. Horses!

The one on Georgia was good, but too Atlanta-centric. And they totally ignored the second largest city in the state.

These are incredible! The Indiana photos make me midwest homesick and the Georgia photos make me want to head down there.

The Georgia one features a lot of Cumberland Island... growing up in NE Florida we went to Cumberland Island a lot and it's every bit as magical as those pictures make it out to be. Absolutely visit if you can.

Years ago National Geographic did a "ZipUSA" thing where they'd feature a different zip code in each issue. I liked it a lot. This kind of scratches the same itch, in a more generalized way.
