Photographed 2005 - 2008
This body of work was photographed, ironically, during a period of extreme drought and heat in Florida. It is my least romantic vision of the Florida landscape, showing it under pressure from climate and development.
I dripped with sweat while working in a cloud of insect repellant, thinking to myself, 'Only foolish humans are out in the heat of the day!'
Almost all of the images in this portfolio were photographed on private land owned by hunting clubs and developers, underscoring the poignancy of a vanishing natural environment. Most of the images are from the Lake Harney area in Oak Hill, with a few from Edgewater, Florida. One was taken in Ormond Beach, Florida.
