Globalization has made the uniqueness of a particular country less significant thus creating an indistinguishable common world community. My project EUSA is a portrayal of American themed places around Europe and European themed places in the US. Being enthralled by another country’s way of life does not mean that it is always an accurate portrayal rather it becomes a sentimental and idealized depiction; an homage to a heritage that isn’t ones own. These locations are a perception of fantasy, a sense of what the other wishes the reality would be in today’s globalized society. Photographing these various maudlin locations within these 2 continents I aim to illustrate the enthusiasm we have for one another’s culture and demonstrate this universal phenomenon that is a reaction to the homogenization of our cultures.
