'Our visual images of the US and our emotional focus on US-culture, history and the landsacape have been deeply shaped by film, photography and advertisement of the second half of the 20th century. Especially after War II the US seems to have invented itself through mythification and iconic imagery.
Transatlantic Relations portraits how US stereotypes are projected and adapted in Europe and how this myth is theme in the US itself. The systematic comparism of one image of the US and one from Europe on a page spread is a contextualisation and modification of the subtext of the images and allows for a play.’
