From the publisher: "This book brings together three of Larry Sultan's best known series: Pictures from Home, The Valley and Homeland, all mainly made in the San Fernando Valley, California, where the artist grew up. Pictures from Home is a survey of his parents' life over the course of a long period; The Valley deals with the Californian pornographic industry which operates out of the suburbs of the region; and Homeland, his late series of landscapes, which appear idyllic at first sight, but which are fractured by the troubling presence of Mexican day-labourers. In all of his photographs Sultan is dealing with the private, political and social aspects of the American Dream -- a dream he locates somewhere between utopia and dystopia. This publication accompanies an exhibition at the kestnergesellschaft, Hannover.
