9783869303079: American Dreaming

American Dreaming presents a vision of America from 1990 to 1995. Spagnoli took these photographs with a small Leica camera in the classic manner of street photography and then selected small details from the negatives. The resulting images of gestures, signs, faces and objects are freed from their original contexts and reconfigured. Spagnoli's subject is the build-up to the First Gulf War, but we see these social and political events at best obliquely as Spagnoli's version of history is primarily subjective and fragmentary. American Dreaming is the second of Spagnoli's books in a trilogy about the personal experience of history, the first being Daguerreotypes (2006).

From the Author :

I have had several reasonable requests to explain this book a bit .

    The work presented here is preoccupied with the nature of documentary photography and the medium's claim of objectivity.

    I began shooting this series at the time of the build-up to the Gulf War in 1990 and intended it to reflect the feeling in America at that time, from the position of one person with a camera in his hand.

    I shot with a Leica and a 35mm lens and afterwards I selected the bits of the negative that I found interesting rather than using the full frame. This process freed the images from the constraints of their apparent context and allowed them to be more open ended. I considered options for presenting the images in random or spontaneous arrangements, in order to engage the viewer's creative impulses. In the end, I decided to place the images in a book with a multi-layered and enveloping layout that would be complex enough to forestall any simple understanding, and rich enough to reward coming to terms with the "reading" of the work as an inner experience.

    Our knowledge and ideas about the world are the result of our particular training and experiences. That's where we get our "point of view." When we walk down a street, we see what we are prepared to see, and understand only as much as our habits and predispositions will allow. What we see is not "what's out there." In a very real sense, it's each individual's own mind that depicts the world.  This book is intended as a practical metaphor for that idea.

    This book is about many things, but fundamentally, it is about the process of unearthing an inner narrative from the bits and pieces scattered around us in the everyday world - order from chaos.
