The exhibition Apprehending Nature/Nature Apprehending is comprised of two bodies of work by Florida photographer Eric Breitenbach, both dealing with aspects of the natural environment.

Apprehending Nature stems from careful examinations and playful photographic experiments with common plant life, most of which were found in the photographer’s own backyard.....MORE

Nature Apprehending approaches common plant life in Florida from a different perspective. What began as a document of abandoned real-estate in Florida stemming from the recent recession, has spawned into a reflection of the adaptability and resilience of nature....MORE

"Tall Timbers Plantation Project is a personal photographic and oral history project that emerged out of my curiosity about the few tenant farmer dwellings still standing on plantations in north Florida and southwest Georgia. When I discovered that Tall Timbers Research Station had restored a tenant farm house and obtained oral histories from former Tall Timbers Plantation tenants and their families"....MORE

Florida has always figured large in the American psyche. Shrouded in mystery and myth, the Florida landscape has inspired awe, fear and conjecture. From the early days of the republic, through the era of exploration and to the present day, explorers, artists and writers chronicled their travels and discoveries in Florida for a curious and fascinated nation.

Stuart Rome has followed in the footsteps of many of these great pro-genitors and journeyed to the heart of the Florida peninsula. His new body of landscape images adds to this rich and compelling history of botanic, scientific and artistic curiosity and draws some of its inspiration from the writings and journals of many important early naturalists.....MORE

“It was during the era in which “father knew best” that Mr. Mozert came up with wacky ideas of attractive “girls” performing above-ground activities underwater, shtick for the camera that was perfectly suited, albeit naively, and calibrated for his time and audience. Underwater, a woman cooks on an old stove while putting a spoon to her mouth to sample the fare. Condensed canned milk floated through holes cut in the top of a can, looking just like rising smoke. All this was done to show the clarity of Silver Springs’ water and draw tourists...MORE

Rick Lang
Rick Lang   April 15 October 24, 2010

Rick Lang is a documentary photographer and educator whose photographic work reflects his interest in the history and culture of the American South. This exhibition presents a grouping of images of vernacular and often simple signs and buildings from many different parts of Florida, his home state. These images demonstrate his commitment to documenting the signs and symbols used by everyday citizens to make their voice and opinions public. The images also illustrate the role that personal and commercial written expression plays in creating public discourse. The expressions of love, hate, religion, bigotry and many other opinions and emotions present in these signs point to an important and often overlooked discourse that illuminates our hopes, dreams and MORE

Light pervades the black-and-white images in the newest portfolio by Lee Dunkel, picking out the tiniest twig in the smallest, or “mini” image, and illuminating a rain-drenched forest or murky pond’s mysterious depths in her radiant prints. “Florida Wetlands” offers a broad overview of a specific terrain, with all of its multifaceted implications and associations wide open to individual interpretation. As her eye has become infinitely more discerning, Dunkel has begun to strip away all momentary, peripheral qualities in a process that emphasizes the essential.  These nature studies are undeniably spectacular; the state’s undeveloped sites and natural vistas are magnificent in their own right. Translated into a burnished black-and-white that defies color’s seductive wiles even as they suggest subdued splendor, her landscapes seem to occupy a rarified space...MORE
