Small Dreams, Trailer Parks in Palm Springs
2006 – 2009, archival digital prints, 24 x 36” to 40 x 60”
Small Dreams presents a typology of the post WWII trailers that popped up in Palm Springs, California. Early models were made using surplus sheet metal and the technology developed to make World War II aircraft. Over the years people would add on, remodel, and create mini gardens and decorative statements. Shot from the same straightforward angle, each exterior façade photograph reflects on the nuanced details and expressive personalized touches of their inhabitants.
