What exactly does the American Dream look like? French photographer Anne-Lise Large travelled across the United States to better understand — and capture — our idea of the “American Dream.”
Now on view at the Art Museum of the Americas at the Organization of American States (through August 9th), The Burning of Visibility: From Reality to Dream include three series, Lost Angels, Mythology, and Margins, shot over a three year period.
The exhibition includes over 30 intimate portraits of individuals moving toward their own definition of progress, that, according to the artist, “expos[es] the underbelly of our nation of dreamers, those struggling to obtain the promise that we all hope to achieve.”
