Nowhere to Go but Everywhere — Dotan Saguy
Dotan Saguy met the Reis family, Mormons from Brazil, the day they arrived in Los Angeles in the yellow school bus they call home with their three children. They had come to the United States two years prior to chase the American Dream and decided to explore an alternative lifestyle that would allow them to spend more time as a family and discover the world together through travel. This body of work documents their trials and tribulations over their ten-month stay in the City of Angels as they struggle as vehicle dwellers, improvised mechanics, unconventional parents, and experimental bread winners while seeking happiness as a family. Accompanying interviews with the family raise topics such as immigration, modern parenting, the housing crisis, and questioning one’s religious identity.
