Images from the book "I AM AMERIKAN" by Rafael Fuchs.
This is a personal compilation of about 150 images that were taken between 2001-2009 by Rafael Fuchs while traveling in the USA.
"Surprising, hilarious and controversial at times, this is a unique vision that was created with inquisitive, yet loving eyes of the artist.
With an obsessive urge to capture a fleeting moment, Rafael ends up sometimes with an unexpected visual translation to what was really happening in front of him."
"Those triumphant and wicked observations strip down the American nation to its bare bones of an inner struggle, pain, joy, ambition and contradictions."
