Carl Gunhouse - American Desire

Arts & Sciences Projects is pleased to present American Desire, an exhibition of photographs by Brooklyn-based photographer Carl Gunhouse on view from January 10-23, 2011.

Gunhouse has traveled across the United States for the past five years creating a portrait of American desire and the dire consequences these yearnings have wrought: a struggling economy, half-finished commercial construction projects, abandoned suburban cineplexes, and foreclosed homes in never-completed subdivisions.

Originally from suburban New Jersey, Gunhouse completed his undergraduate studies in European History and Photography at Fordham University. He earned an MA in American History at Fordham, and later completed the MFA program in Photography at Yale University. Gunhouse currently teaches photography at Montclair State University.
