Small Dreams, Trailer Parks in Palm Springs2006 – 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

This is a set of images which reminds me of my own project, though with much more quirkyness and individuality than my photos. It is typology and investigation into personality. It does, however, encourage me to continue on documenting the variety of houses that I see, and continue to produce a larger body of work in the future.
