"'A quirky, funny, affectionate take on Americans at play.' - Nick Hall, The Independent Magazine; 'Schermerhorn works within the tradition of great American photography to show the surreal underbelly of the USA.' - Nick Waplington; 'Americans do a lot of things in the name of fun. We shoot each other with paint, we bungee jump and we pretend to bungee jump. We play bingo and we bowl, we fish, we hit golf balls through clown heads and miniature churches. We even stack Oreo Cookies. It seems that life is not about expanding our minds or learning life's lessons - it's about bumper stickers.' - Kate Schermerhorn"
