Andrew Moisey is an award-winning photographer and educator. He is Assistant Professor of Art History and Visual Studies, a Rosevear Faculty Fellow at Cornell University. The American Fraternity is a photobook that provides an intimate and provocative look at Greek culture on college campuses by combining contemporary photographs with scanned pages from a wax-stained 60 year old ritual manual.
The book is soft and leather-bound and appears to be the property of a college fraternity called “Psi Rho.” As we turn the pages, we see the rituals, the historic imagery, and the raw, intimate photographs of young men dispensing with their high-minded oaths. In its final chapter, The American Fraternity lists many US presidents, current Senators and Representatives, past and present Supreme Court justices, CEOs, and church Bishops in fraternities.
