This photographic series is an investigation of the idealistic dreams of a perfect life that demonstrates notions of authenticity of experience and environment. Our ability to construct new narratives in life are contained or limited by what we know. To further the narrative of ideal notions, I found inspiration from photographing within the American culture. Often our search for "truth and meaning" is found through a reading of what is, potentially, a fabrication (whether partial or total). By photographing these spaces and searching for an understanding of 'happiness' I am, in effect, exploring a belief of how these spaces - in mid-west America - would be and feel like to live in.
