The Secret of Happiness and Virtue

Time-lapse sampler, Winter/Spring 2014. Photography experiments shot in and around Washington DC, the Maryland Eastern Shore and Ground Zero, New York City.

Turn on your speakers – this collection is meant to be what they’re all meant to be: funny, strange, interesting…. and ironic.

Look for hints of French impressionism, Soviet constructivism, American pop art, Japanese Imperialist re-education and the global surveillance state.

The narrative tying it together (written 1931, recorded 1955) echoes complaints about where the doltish American culture is headed.
