“It's no great exaggeration to say that the houses and gardens in [this] series more closely resemble movie sets than homes; pristine 1950s architecture enveloping equally spotless vintage cars, swimming pools encircled by figurative sculptures in a Kubrickian balancing-act between gaudiness and refinement, all isolated before the craggy desert mountains of the Coachella Valley.” — HotShoe

About the Artist

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.
