Project: I’ll See You on the Beach

Description: I’ll See You On The Beach addresses sites that commemorate the American legacies of exploration, conquest, and the instillation of nationalism by way of stimulating displays. The photographs document the country’s enthusiastic interest with its own military power by focusing on museum exhibits that memorialize historical battles and other world-changing events through theatrical recreations.
