The vast expanses of America, everyday culture, social landscapes and urban metropolises. This exhibition is the center of the revival of American iconography after 1945. Overly idealized landscapes have been replaced by everyday motifs that were previously considered unworthy of representation. Photographers have taken road trips and created series that portray American society in a critical light. By capturing the dynamics of big cities. The tendency was to use a spontaneous and instantaneous pictorial language. And in a contrasting approach, other works involved the staging of elaborate paintings. They look like films that were used to attack photographic reality and illusion as well as societal changes.
