A Golden State

Shawn Bush

A Golden State, the first monograph by photographer Shawn Bush, is an exploration into the mythologies associated with Californian existence. By following historical and contemporary paths of ideological propagation, Bush highlights the mirage of an idealized existence connected to place. Having lived within Hollywood’s sphere of influence, the dissonance between its reality and its referent becomes increasingly removed with its role as the backdrop of Western ideology.
