Dolly Faibyshev is an American artist with a love for color, composition, and the human condition. She has photographed a wide range of subjects, from the primped and prodded models of New York Fashion Week to the overly groomed animals at the Dog Show, from Dolly Parton impersonators to the the muscle-bound performers of Wrestlemania, from the 1950s time capsule of Palm Springs to the faux iconic people and structures of Las Vegas. Born to Russian immigrants, the vicarious fantasy of America became ingrained in her from an early age until she learned to define those experiences in pictures. She is a New York City based self-taught photographer exploring the meaning of the American Dream in all of its forms.
Her work has been published in The New Yorker, Le Monde, TIME, The New York Times, Businessweek, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, and other publications.
