Nashville self-portrait project
A new photo project at The Tennessean, inspired by the Detroit Free Press, has really taken off in its first few days. The newspaper has called on readers to submit their photos that most define the city. I wrote up an introduction for the Sunday paper, excerpted below. See the project here: Nashville Self Portrait.

Nashville, it’s time to get your picture made.

So The Tennessean wants to know: What is it that makes Nashville … Nashville?

If you put the city in a picture — just one — would it be a pair of boots, tinged with neon, on Lower Broadway? Or maybe that particularly pointy skyscraper rising above the rest.

It could be legions of guitar cases inbound at the airport, or the one and only guitar big enough to keep score at the baseball game.

Today, we present a portrait of the city as seen through the eyes of Tennessean staff photographers. But we want your help creating this portrait — a Nashville self-portrait — by capturing photos of the people and places that most say “Nashville” to you.

Send us photos of our city, then we’ll show them off, starting today, at, and then in print editions in the coming months. Find full details about how to participate at
