The Distance Between Desire And Reality

Looking at both sides of the ‘American Dream’, Singaporean photographer, Nguan, explores what dreamers go through getting to their ‘Hollywood endings’.

The documented photo series titled ‘City Of Dreams’ exploits the intricate reality in the city of Los Angeles, California. Rare rainbows, vacant shabby motels, and people with dreams of fame on Hollywood Blvd. The herculean city is home to everyone from the bottom to the stars at top.
