Striking Photos Will Change The Way You See The Average American (found via @MissZindzi)

What does the average American look like? As time goes on, the answer to that question is becoming more and more complicated.

The country is living up to its melting pot reputation as American faces become less homogenous and more diverse, a phenomenon that renowned photographer and portrait artist Martin Schoeller captured for the October 125th anniversary issue of National Geographic magazine.

The images, which are coupled with the individual’s “self ID” and the box he or she checked to indicate race as specified on the 2000 and 2010 census, are a striking reminder of Americans’ complex cultural and racial origins.
