The American Asylum is a new photo project I’m working on. It’s a straitjacket made out of the American flag. It’s still in the early stages. Right now I’m just doing test shoots and figuring out my ideas.
I had a straight jacket made out of the American flag to represent my feelings on gay marriage in California. But the jacket fit so many different scenarios for so many different Americans I knew I had to keep building ideas around it. This is from a test shoot I did when I got it. Jacket made by Christian Lastra.
