Share Article

After two and a half years of work by photographer, Matthew Jordan Smith, "Future American President" has already started shipping, just in time for the planned release of President's Day. With a foreword by Disney's Zendaya and a unique comment from President Jimmy Carter, the book captures the aspirations of children from all fifty states, who hope to one day be president.

An incredible body of work capturing the aspirations of the children of one hundred families across America.

When Matthew Jordan Smith started his book project, "Future American President", he had no idea just how far reaching it would go. Now, two and a half years later the book captures the dreams of children of one hundred families in fifty states all based on the question, "What would you do if your were president?"

Eight year old, Jacob, from Illinois wrote, "if I were a presidend I would make shure everyone had food."

Twelve year old Kennedy from Mississippi wrote, "If I were president I would help people get along with each other. People judge others by what they look like and not what's on the inside. Everyone is special in their own way and there is no need to change!"

From the whimsical to the serious, Matthew Jordan Smith has captured the essence of their goals in both their portrait and their hand-written dreams. That old expression, "from the mouths of babes" couldn't be more accurately displayed over and over again in this stunning presentation.

"I wanted to capture more than just their portrait," commented Smith. "I wanted to create a body of work that was representative of a segment of America's youth. These kids represent infinite dreams and in their own words, a hope to change America."

Future American President is destined to be one of the most talked about books of 2015. It's received terrific reviews and is on its way to the White House.
