Ah, to be in Palm Springs, where the houses look like they’re wearing sun-hats and the grass is, quite literally, greener. Dolly Faibyshev’s photographic series documenting the gaudier side of California stays true to her enjoyment of capturing the garish artificiality of American culture, complete with pretend cactus mailboxes and plastic orbs-a-plenty. Her subject matter ranges from dog shows in Las Vegas to Texas rodeos, but all of Dolly’s work subverts the idea of the American dream through her playfully satirical lens.
In fact, the vibrant colours which blare from her Palm Springs images are as inviting as they are loud; the scenes she photographs might look like they’ve hopped directly from a 1980s film set, but we wouldn’t mind a wander around them all the same.
