Former President Jimmy Carter in 2014, teaching Sunday School at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, including any tourists who come by. Photographer Alec Soth took this shot as part of a travel project along the back roads of America. He and a reporter-friend posed as journalists for an imaginary newspaper, shooting and writing up what they found along the way – and publishing the results. In time they gained a following online, and The Happy Valley Journal printed editions in seven states. (Reportage: The New York Times)
