These photographs represent my exploration of the country I see everyday. By focusing
upon people I meet wherever I go, I hope to see America more truthfully than commercial
media describes it. That media being mostly engaged in manufacturing our addiction to
Celebrity and escape from reality.
Seeing a mediated fantasy world dominated by Celebrity every day of our lives, I believe
that we begin to see those people and that world as having greater significance even than
ourselves. So which is the real America? The one advertised, or the one we live in and see
when we stand on the corner and look around, wherever we are in America?
