Firstly, in the U.S. these “European” venues resemble a land of make-believe, like something out of a fairy-tale. So, they are magical, whimsical and quaint and the attendees are paying tribute to their ancestry and origins. In Europe these American-themed amusement parks and festivals reveal an ongoing enthusiasm for a mythologized "America" of the past, when the U.S. was considered glorious and free, with cowboys and Indians roaming the wide-open plains just like in the movies. The foundation of these locations was to honour the “other,” but what was once characteristic has now ultimately become a caricature. Photographing these fascinating locations across these two continents my goal was to illustrate the enthusiasm we have for one another's culture and heritage. These exaggerated reconstructions bear little authenticity and rather are a perception of fantasy, a sense of what the other wishes the reality to be. And through this spirit of camaraderie, if only for that moment, the participants are granted membership to another’s culture. More books Naomi Harris by here. More books by KEHRER here.
