The subject of the “Great American Dream” is explored through photographer Charles Mintz’s series, “Lustron Stories.” Lustron Corporation manufactured porcelain-baked, enamel-coated, all-steel houses between 1948 and 1950 in Columbus, Ohio. The kit homes were shipped-to-site and assembled by local contractors. Many of the homes are still in use today. This project set out to discover who lives in these homes now.
About the artist:
Charles Mintz's work is primarily documentary, built around ideas that are interesting and important to him. Two of his projects are in the permanent collection of The Smithsonian’s Museum of American History. He is fortunate enough to have his photographs, books and short films included in the collections of museums, other institutions, and private collections around the world.
