Thomas Kern creates ‘A Drug Free Land’ between 2002 and 2009. On his way through everyday life in rural America he finds striking situations. His images condense the unspectacular and point beyond themselves to the state of the nation. They tell of the country’s shock after 9/11, which still continues today, and of the breaking American Dream. In the fleeting moment the big issues flash, loneliness and poverty, patriotism and racism, love and violence.
