A project created over a six year period, Pursuit is the disenchanted chronicle of an idealized America.
“Being a keen admirer of American literature, cinema and painting, I created my own fancied-America, a not-so-imaginary place filled with fictional heroes. The purpose of this work is to juxtapose a mental construction to the reality of the American everyday life and to picture the ?American experience? as a metaphor for a bigger experience. In my photographs I mean to suggest rather than describe, translate life?s small dramas into something timeless and universal.” — Richard Pak
