Ed Kashi has just completed an assignment for Jyllands-Posten, one of Denmark’s major daily newspapers. Covering the first 30 days of a 100-day journey across America in the run-up to the election, the journey took Ed and staff writer Heidi Ploughsgaard Jensen from Los Angeles and Southern California to Arizona, then New Mexico, Texas, finally ending in New Orleans, Louisiana.

With stories ranging from politics, the border wall, immigration, the homeless, the LA porn industry, the weed industry, religion, culture, school reopening, and what daily life during the pandemic is like in this troubled nation, Ed’s journey across America took the pulse of a country preparing for its upcoming election.
