“I like to revisit my 'Palm Springs' series every now and then, looking for something I might have overlooked on the last trip, and I'm always trying to look at the same thing from a new perspective. This time, I focused on the nature surrounding the mid-century modern homes.” — Dolly Faibyshev
As an American born to Russian immigrants, the “vicarious fantasy of America” is an integral aspect of work by self-taught photographer Dolly Faibyshev (b. 1981). By examining the relationship of her family to their adopted homeland, Faibyshev documents those experiences in pictures, which explore the meaning of the American dream in all its forms. Her images reflect an obsessive sense of color, form, and an unconventional humor. Faibyshev’s first major series, Palm Springs, captured the archaic charm of iconic Palm Springs neighborhoods, resulting in an exhibition and publication, Palm Springs, Mid-Century Modern. She continues to examine themes rooted in Americana with her series Best in Show, a quirky look at Show Dogs and their handlers. Her portfolio continues to grow with her exploration of rodeos and nightclubs.
