Rarely if ever have we seen the American upper class through the candid lens of an insider. For over fifty years, Will Vogt has documented the lives of his family and friends. These Americans presents an intimate portrait of American elites from 1969-1996 on vacation and at play.

Private villas, exclusive clubs, racetracks, yachts and hunting lodges provide a backdrop of luxury where Vogt, the ever-present insider, captures the raw beauty and uninhibited excesses of his social circle. Jay McInerney's (Bright Lights Big City ) accompanying introduction provides an insightful interpretation as he eloquently describes his impression of Vogt's images and the scenes portrayed in These Americans . "These people are living in the world that their parents and their grandparents inhabited and created. They aren't rebelling against the previous generation." . The "images give us a sense of spying on intimate moments, which imbues them with a certain tension and mystery".
