On election day November 8, 2016, when the returns affirmed an electoral college majority for Donald Trump, Brian Rose was devastated by the prospect of his presidency and troubled by the sudden realization that many of his assumptions about American society were wrong. As an artist and photographer, he felt compelled to respond in some meaningful way. Almost immediately, he seized on the idea of photographing Atlantic City, with its extreme juxtaposition of wealth and poverty as a metaphor for much of what was going on in the country as a whole. Join Brian as he discusses the making of Atlantic City, his collection of photographs of this former playground by the sea turned myth of the American dream.
