Documentary exhibit "Faces From An American Dream," by Martin Desht, depicts America's economic transition from industrial manufacturing to service and information; how it re-defined the American industrial city and what it meant for skilled and unskilled workers in search of the American dream. Exhibit has been displayed at Harvard University, Dartmouth College, New York University's Stern School of Business, United States Department of Labor, and many other venues. "Faces From An American Dream" has been touring nationally since 1992. Desht's book Photosonata (2015) is a collection of images, essays, and poems based on this work. Desht is a former Bethlehem Steel crane electrician. He lives in Santa Fe, NM. Next exhibit: Vista Grande Public Library, January 2017. Website: http://martindesht.wix.com/martindesht
