Paul Zubec is a pinball and jukebox retailer based in Löhne, Germany. Inside of his two unremarkable warehouses he built a combination between shop and showroom for his huge collection of modern and classic automats. With customers from all over the world, his setup and decoration is ever-changing yet based around the idea of the American Dream.

This interpretation of the American Dream is the focus of my photographic work. Zubec built his enterprise all on his own and still manages it today with his significant other, Petra Knollmann. My photos emphasise the clash between tidiness which is usually attributed to German culture and the more maximalist approach often found in America.
