Shaped by the West signed book 

Another Era signed premium print (20x16 // 22x18 with border // Edition of 10)

Shaped by the West

The body of work made between 2015 and 2019 on solo road trips around the American West is rooted in the westernization of my home country Slovenia and the resulting lack of national identification which had a significant impact on me growing up. Shaped by the West is a personal and artistic exploration of the emblematic symbols of Americana from my youth in opposition to my present identity. The book’s prevailing narrative is centered around a nostalgic vision of the American dream contrasted with my own process of applying for an artist visa. The body of work featured in this book has been created while traveling around Arizona, California, New Mexico, Utah, and Nevada.

Another Era

The photograph featured in Shaped by the West portrays two European cars in an all American setting of Palm Springs. The Citroen and Mercedes Benz blend into the scene, giving an almost staged-like feeling. As a Slovenian living in the United States, this scene resonates with me on multiple levels.
