The American Diner
Diners have become a nostalgic icon. A tableau of Americana romanticized and parodied in popular culture.
These photographs present a slightly less than sanguine view of the American diner, suggesting an underlying sense of desolation. Emphasizing the ambiguity of togetherness and separation, the human condition and disconnection. Suspended in a period of waiting, “enlivened occasionally by a glimpse of lyrical joy.”
