About the Author 
  
Jeff Dunas, a native of Los Angeles, was born in 1954. His previous book, State of the Blues, was published by Aperture in 1998. His work has been exhibited at galleries internationally. 
  
 
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
In 1993, Jeff Dunas set out on the first of many trips crisscrossing the country to photograph scenes representative of small-town America in the 1950s, revisiting the country of his youth after spending the previous two decades in Paris. The stunning result is the American Pictures series documenting the architecture, landscape, and people simply living their American dream. 
  
 
  
"Visually speaking," Dunas observes, "the texture of this country has evolved from wood-and-brick buildings to glass structures that don't open. Air-conditioning runs in place of fresh air, which in itself is sometimes difficult to find. I wanted to take an archive of work from the last century into this century while I still could."
