Van Ditthavong: Portrait of the American Dream
July 3 - August 6, 2008
3699 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, TX 75204
Van Ditthavong juxtaposes images of blue-collar workers with ideas of American culture. Of course he’s commenting on the complex issue of immigration, and the reality vs. the ideals of American life, but his witty, absurd photographs manage to avoid becoming too heavy-handed.
