Jake Stangel‘s Pontiac Dream.

Pontiac Dream is an open-ended retrospective on America’s transitioning identity, as it drifts away from a local mom-and-pop, industry-proud culture and moves toward a more corporately maintained society.

The project memorializes a mid-point of this transition, focusing on the country’s resplendent and iconic heritage in a way that straddles both currency and nostalgia. With an understanding of this evolution, it’s up to the viewer to infer how such rich cultural seeds might sow America’s future.

Also, take a few minutes to visit Stangel‘s excellent photo blogazine: too much chocolate. (Although it’s more likely you already have)
