Yann work "Horizonville " is a journey into a swiss valley documenting people and their American dream. Yann sais "Most of the people I photographed haven’t ever been in the United State of America. They feel a sense of belonging to another culture that they don’t really know. Far from the Swiss stereotypes, the confusion of symbols and the lifestyle of the people take us in a strange atmosphere, a dreamed reality which doesn’t exist in facts.
