Boundary pushing fashion designer Raif Adelberg is also a boundary pushing artist. His exhibition “All I have are my dreams” set to debut at the Doyle Devere gallery in London features photography in which its subjects are patriotic clowns draped in the stars and stripes of the U.S. flag.

Blending Americana, punk esthetic, race and the mystery of concealed faces, Adelberg begs us to take a closer look at ourselves. The symbolism of the patriotic clown photographed in such a personal manner gives some insight into the theory that Raif’s “dreams” are very close to reality.
