  Portraits of an American Dream , 2009, s election of altered found photographs    A stack of travel snapshots, found amongst the rubble and long since discarded personal belongings in what had most recently been family housing quarters at the Chanute Air Force Base in rural Central Illinois, one of the oldest facilities in the U.S. Airforce. The base, abandoned since 1993, is now classified as a Superfund Site.  The pictures appeared to trace one person's or family's journey by car across the U.S. from east to west.  Occasionally the car's hood ornament was visible, but people appeared in none of the nearly 20 images. The traveler's camera was turned solely outward from the vehicle onto the land.
