“The disaster ruins everything, all the while leaving everything intact….the disaster is separate; that which is most separate.” - Maurice Blanchot, The Writing of the Disaster, 1980.

In 1941 Walker Evans traveled to Florida and made a series of photographs on Florida’s coast, as the state was developing as both a tourist destination and a landscape shaped by real-estate speculation.

This series of pictures extends Evans’ project into the 21st century, working in a liminal space inspired by the New Topography photographers of the 1970s, but with a sensitivity to the semiotic potentials of rupture and fragmentation that describe our lives in our current century.
