Our perceptions of America are often constructed of stereotypical images and ideas semi-consciously cobbled together & evolved into "beliefs” - beliefs informed largely by emotional focus as individual. Each opposing-page of "Transatlantic Relations" presents one photograph of America, and one from the greater Brandenburg area. This layout and context encourages us to examine our own preconceived image-concepts between these two “lands", as well as ponder the possible origins of and stories behind these photographs on both sides of the Atlantic.
