This series is a documentation of found objects with a reoccurring flag motif. This series of work is a reaction to the patriotism that surrounds everyday American life. Patriotism can be seen as positive or negative depending on the political climate. The patriotism in the images is often ambiguous, and are a result of the shooting method, which aims to mimic the way one might experience patriotism in the real world.
