Mammtoh

Open

Mammoth is shot on a road trip through the States, in the summer of 2011.

The photos are a mix of portraiture, reportage and manipulated photos. My intention was to consider USA as a giant on the verge of extinction, a Mammoth. The photos are different abstractions on this point of view. I was inspired by the turmoil of the country's current financial and social crisis, by impressions from my trip, from the landscape, of cowboys that are no longer quite cowboys, of the opening scene from The Shining. The odd and unsetling nature of the photos is meant as a little visual testiment to the course USA seems to be taking these days.
