In our imagination, it was the region of outlaws, account regulations, the refuge of the destitute and nonconformist, gold diggers and pioneers. The promised land where the lack of closure meet the immensity. The location of all possible, where has been built the myth of success. American culture based on the urban landscape takes a leading role in the collective imagination. And photographic. Born in the 1950s, the American way of life -based on equal opportunities- is primarily a promise of abundance, the land of mass consumption, marked by the profusion of goods.

The home ownership becomes a social success mark. Today American model based on the very mythical “American way of life”, has its limits, especially, in the social field. In this album, I try to locate the wild west, between the American dream and the American reality. A trip to the graphic america with polychrome universe and acidulated colors that still today transmit the light of past ideals.
