Not only America, but the whole world is currently going through a lot of turmoil and social change. It seems like the story of the never ending dance of light and dark, good vs. evil has become reality. And it is becoming clear that our futures, our social contracts and our sense of personal security are not as steady and predictable as we want to believe. But not everything is turmoil, threats and geopolitics. There is also the good moments and the hope and light, that we can create and witness day by day, if we open our eyes and hearts. Many people, especially our essential workers have done the impossible to support and rescue and uplift all of us. There is moments of light and beauty all around us. And after two years into the pandemic there is also the return of a special spirit of freedom and ease that comes with the spirit of the American summer. The beaches, the long hot nights, and the beautiful cities and beautiful people are doing their magic. Summer time in the US, when the light is golden and people are outside healing from their hard work, their worries and the long, cold winter month, is sacred and beautiful. Everything and everyone looks a little more radiant and joyful. People are healing their wounds and souls in the sun light. American summer 01 is a meditation on the beauty of the American summer, American people, the beaches, and long summer nights.
