The Dylan Maddux photography centers around California culture. Maddux hits the pavement in this photo series called 'American Dream.'

Maddox is a talented photographer who focuses on themes of hip-hop, gang culture and the sense of community in specific California neighborhoods. His shots are gritty, authentic and show an alternative side of California. Fascinating photographs include a heavily tattooed man posing shirtless against a wall and a young woman in her bikini lying in an empty pool. His work is graffiti-filled and has a raw nature to it. The expressions are fierce and intimate and the settings are legitimate. There is an instantaneous connection built between you and the subjects. It is a remarkable body of work that is riveting and compelling.

The Dylan Maddux photography is a an authentic glimpse into California and the sub-cultures it acts home to.
