This American Dream

This American Dream is an ongoing visual documentation based on my perception of my birth country, the United States, and how the concept of the American Dream does not reflect the reality and opportunities available to those that live it.

American journalist Chris Hedges states it plainly in his book Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt: “The vaunted American dream, the idea that life will get better, that progress is inevitable if we obey the rules and work hard, that material prosperity is assured, has been replaced by a hard and bitter truth. The American dream, we now know, is a lie.”
