This series started as an annual event. I decided one 4th of July that I needed to express my feelings of patriotism, and created the first in the America series. The next year I began to examine my feelings more closely, and the images from there out began to take a radical turn. I felt it important to explore the disparity between the perception of the holiday – and in turn, the country – and the reality of the politics of today.
Eventually, I started getting more ideas than I wanted to wait until the next 4th of July to do, and decided to change it from an annual event, to a whenever I felt like it event. After all, this is America, and I’m free to do whatever the Hell I want, right?
