AMERICA/AMERIKA

 

 contractor — New York , New York

 water — Allentown, Pennsylvania  The America that I intimately photograph seems different, unfamiliar, fractured. People seem anxious, divided, disinterested and, at times, unhinged. Something has changed. While the buildings and landscapes are generally the same, the people or their perceptions and sensibilities seem different, strangely out of step. I’m curious. What’s going on?   Consider this work a non-scientific inquiry into a people.  The photographs serve as a maquette of the project.  summer 2017
